Life Clock is a clock displaying the number of seconds since your birth. It also displays a life bar inspired by video games, based on the average life expectancy in France! Thought like a celebration of life, showing that every moment that passes is one more second where you are alive, this object also suggests a countdown to death. A double facet that puts many people uncomfortable…
With a simple change of time scale, the Life Clock invites its user to become aware of the time that passes, but especially to take advantage of the present moment. A reflection on our ability to perceive time, and on our relationship to birth and death.
After the Political Lamp, triggering a storm for every tweet from Donald Trump, the Life Clock is a new project by Parse/Error, the identity behind which I create my experiments between art, design and technology.
