The goal of this project was to design and build a clock that represents an abstract, non-literal interpretation of time. Early on, I knew that I wanted to incorporate light in relation to time into the concept. Initially, that led me in the direction of relativity and light cones in cosmic physics. After developing this concept, I realized that the ideas I wanted to execute were not realistic given the timeframe and scope of the project.
So, I went back to the drawing board and thought of other ways that light and time can be correlated. Photography is perhaps one of the most fitting ways to physically demonstrate that correlation. I decided to design a clock that related to exposure in photography because of how visually apparent even the slightest changes are in the relationship between time and light. The packaging I designed is meant to further emphasize the concept to that end.
