come back later.

For my first workshop at the Media & Interaction design unit at ECAL in Lausanne I proposed a simple task to my new students: design a clock.
One of the many stereotypes of Switzerland is the “swiss punctuality” which somehow relates to the history of the swiss watch industry. The broader subject about time and time keeping permits an investigation and an approach in technological, historical, social, conceptual and philosophical domain.
I also came across of some of Yugo Nakamuras beautiful “Clock experiments” (Clockblock and Industrious Clock) and thought that the kinetic nature of the object but also it’s implicit simplicity made it a perfect subject to explore with the students.
