The Clock Clock

This is ‘The Clock Clock’. (say that fast). It is a concept created by the Stockholm-based design studio Humans Since 1982. They place 24 two-handed clocks in three rows of eight so that depending on how the hands of the clocks are arranged they would become the numbers on the digital clock. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TsvxC-coYDk&feature=plcp When the time changes the hands on the clocks move into position to show the correct time in a digital format. I think it is such a clever idea and I love the video footage. It has a very haunting feel to it. There is however one thing that I’m not sure I understand, what happens when it gets to 11:11 or anytime an 8 is needed. Answers on a postcard.
