Entropic Clock

This Project deals with a time phenomena called „Entropie“. It says, that with proceeding time comes proceeding disorder. Publicly known as the the „Chaos Theory“ this timedevice plays with the idea of generating disorder while¬†simply showing the time. The Pointers are replaced by strings, which get mixed up while the clock is running.


Is the clock running, the strings representing the clock’s pointers, mix themselves up. Located behind the clock face are three spools, generating new string and preventing it to tear apart. Once the tension of the strings rises due to an intense mixup, the needles grabbing the strings bend, set them free and the whole process starts from the beginning. With ongoing time.
