The L I F E C L O C K

nothing seems out of the ordinary when you first look at this clock. upon closer inspection, you may notice the numbers seem a little high.

this is because one rotation of this clock is equal to the average human lifespan.

the clock is an artwork by bertrand planes which uses an ordinary clock slowed down 61320 times to make each minute equal to a year.

I find this a fascinating yet frightening concept...
