ClockClock 24 by Humans since 1982 is both a kinetic sculpture art edition and functioning clock. It combines conceptual art with technical synchronized precision and expert craftsmanship. Each work is produced and carefully assembled in Humans since 1982's workshop in Stockholm, Sweden.

CONCEPT
The ClockClock project started in 2008 by Per Emanuelsson and Bastian Bischoff. Inspired by the question "How to shape time", the university duo experimented with analog clock hands that would depict a changing, moving typography. They showed a mock-up to electrical engineer, Australian David Cox. Cox (also now part of Humans since 1982) helped the duo develop a prototype. A curator at the auction house Phillips de Pury took the work to Saatchi Gallery London and sold one to a Russian oligarch. Selling on the art market in a small edition number, ClockClock 24 was eventually created to reach a broader audience. It's important to understand this work is not a novelty, but rather part of an ongoing series within a broader body of artistic work. Along with ClockClock 24, there are several other editions and commissions including the recent ClockClock L and the ongoing A million Times works. Please contact us for more information.

THE MOVEMENT
Twenty-four clocks come together to tell a collective story in one singular digital display. Each individual clock hand is choreographed in line with the others; the twenty-four clocks tell the time as a collective, rather than individually. The clocks transition from unpredictable spinning to synchronized alignment—visually representing both the concept of time and the literal display of time.ClockClock 24 can be programmed in 12-or 24-hour time format and can display three different modes of movement between each minute: minimal, medium or elaborate.

THE BODY
ClockClock 24 is available in 6 editions: White, Grey, Black, Noir (950 works each); and Golden Hands - White or Black (250 works each). The hands in the Golden Hands editions are 22k gold-plated. The clock body in each edition is made of Corian (white) or Corian Deep Nocturne (black). Clock Clock 24 is 40lbs and for wall display only (it includes necessary wall mount hardware). The cord can be concealed by recessing the outlet.

MORE EDITIONS AVAILABLE
Larger scale works are available from the studio. Please contact Kirk for more information.

CREATORS
Humans since 1982 is a interdisciplinary team based in Stockholm, Sweden that defies traditional art & design categorizations. They were established in 2009 by Bastian Bischoff (b. 1982, Germany) and Per Emanuelsson (b. 1982, Sweden). Humans since 1982 exhibits worldwide at leading galleries, fairs and institutions. Their experiential installations and series works explore themes concurrent to their renowned kinetic sculpture clock artwork.

    • 3 modes of movement between each minute display: minimal, medium or elaborate

      Mode 1 (Elaborate): This mode contains ten different choreographies for display. For each minute, the clock hands come together to perform one of the ten choreographies before displaying the exact time. This mode is visually the liveliest of all modes.

      Mode 2 (Medium): This mode contains five different choreographies for display. For each minute, the clock hands come together to perform one of the five choreographies before displaying the exact time. This mode is visually elaborated without being too lively.

      Mode 3 (Minimal): This mode does not display any choreographies. Only the necessary clock hands will turn once a minute to display the exact time. This mode is visually simple and quiet.

    cc24 buttons
    All hands should be pointing down in the 'six' position.

  • Battery backup

    ClockClock 24 has a built-in battery that keeps track of time in case of a power cutage, so you don't need to reset the time. Once the power is back on, it will resume with the current time.

  • Sound during operation

    The ClockClock 24 does not make any noticeable noise; however, the movement sound may be noticeable in very quiet settings. We do not recommend installing it in a bedroom or any room where absolute silence is important. We find it interesting that some customers expect clocks to be silent—when this was never the case with mechanical clocks.

  • Where not to display
    • Do not install in rooms with high humidity or outdoors.
    • Do not place the clock where it could incur unintentional knocks or pulling of the cable.
    • Avoid direct heat radiation, for example heat from radiators
    • Avoid direct sunlight
    • Though quiet, not for use in areas where absolute silence is required.
  • Samples & return policy

    We have Corian samples we can mail if you are deciding between white, grey or black editions.

    Clock Forward does not accept returns for ClockClock 24. We feel all our customers deserve a new, unused work. Please contact us with any pre-sale questions. As with any art purchase, we want you to purchase a work that brings you daily joy.

    Humans since 1982 and Clock Forward are not liable for any damage to property or personal injury caused by not following the instructions for use, improper handling or incorrect placement or mounting of the clock.
