Human Clock is such a sweet and simple idea. It’s also a wonderful way to take a photo tour of the world. And now that it’s 10 years old, I like to imagine you’ll never see the same clock twice. Pictured above is Seattle, Washington, USA.

While we’re on the subject, it’s worth mentioning Christian Marclay’s video installation The Clock (2010). Certainly one of the most ambitious archival editing projects ever undertaken, Marclay creates a functional 24-hour clock face compiled from old movie footage. For this work he was awarded a Gold Lion at the Venice Biennale, where he was also named amongst the ten most important artists of today. Here’s an excerpt from the installation.
