The Knitting Clock

“The 365 knitting clock was made to measure and register time in a three dimensional form to visualise the otherwise invisible time factor that connects us all. Instead of showing time in numbers, the tool we normally use to understand and organise time, the knitting clock shows the philosophical point of the ongoing process of time. It is knitting the hours and the days and shows the time as something that is constantly moving, changing and developing.

Every passing of a half hour is marked by the knitting of a stitch, a full day is measured by a full circle around the clock and a year results in a two metre long scarf. After one year the wool has to be replaced and a new year can be knitted. The year that has past is this year’s scarf. And the coming year is the wool unknitted.”
