A million Times & Commissions

Together with ClockClock editions, A million Times editions form the larger kinetic clock art series by the artist collaborative "Humans since 1982." The artworks in this series each utilize fundamental minimalist forms, the seriality of conceptual art, and kinetic motion.

ClockClock and A million Times editions bring functional objects that are equal parts high design, technical innovation, and fine art to residential & commercial spaces. The works allow lovers of design and kinetic art to enjoy creations by an international design team that has created awe-inspiring public art commissions such as A million Times at Changi (Singapore), which features 504 identical clock faces in motion.
