What time is it?

Uhrzeitwechsel 10:10 - 10:11

Time flows. From one moment to  the next. Minute by minute. Drop by drop. Often unnoticed and calm.  But then we become aware that something changed,  that time has moved  on. This wall clock depicts this ambivalence of time. Not recognizable as a clock at first glance, Drop-A-Min quickly reveals its elegance and simplicity.

The minutes are arranged vertically one above the other in a sinusoidal curved band of 59 white LEDs. 12 hours lie on the central axis of the sine and shine in red. The arrangement is chosen so that the edges of the sine are ten minutes apart. By counting these maxima, you can quickly determine the time, even if many minutes are already lit.

At every full minute, the LEDs light up one after the other for a brief moment from top to bottom, making it appear as if this minute is dripping down. It comes to rest on the last LED and the band is filled with further minutes until the hour. After every minute, the display is still until the next minute begins.
