Measuring Time Through Music
Clock and Packaging Prototype
Looking beyond traditional mechanisms of time, this project analyzes time and its relativity to music. Hours, minutes, and seconds have a relative value, similar to whole, half, and quarter notes. Sheet music is read like one would a new language. In a symphony, each movement is assigned a different tempo: allegro, pretissimo, andante, and largo. The face of the clock is divided into four traditional movements of a symphony orchestra.
The clock is made of polystyrene, as well as its packaging. Our class auctioned the clocks to raise funds for our senior show.
