Some things are just meant to be seen in motion. That’s certainly the case with A Million Times, a whirring board of almost 300 analogue clocks that exist in such a beautiful harmony with one another that they can segue from a pattern of rhythmically undulating waves to a full-functional digital watchface. A static image doesn’t do it justice.
Here’s a pretty great way to avoid procrastination:
Should, Coulda, Woulda, by Swedish design student Maria Bergström, is a blank-face wall clock that comes with a set of colorful leather-covered magnets. The magnets represent tasks you want to accomplish throughout the day. Stick ‘em onto the clock according to when you want to complete your work and behold: a gentle reminder of all the things you need to get done. Finish a task on time and reward yourself by removing the corresponding magnet. If you don’t finish on time? The clock’s hand pushes the magnet forward. Dally on all your tasks and the hand pushes all the magnets forward — a slightly less gentle reminder of your laggardly ways.
The magnets move! Time is subjective. It’s cool.
