Streetclock , by 3eyes, encourages people to consider the idea of time before digital technologies became pervasive.

Shadows cast by street furniture over urban landscapes are measured in relation to painted road markings.


Referencing sundials, the road markings denote specific times, but at irregular intervals, unlike the uniform markings on a clock-face. The project preserves incidental times such as 10:19 or 5:02. Besides, the “shadow-lines”, and therefore the reading of time, are distorted by pedestrians.

Streetclock explores the reclamation of urban territories and the way in which these physical and metaphysical spaces can be re-appropriated for, and by, their inhabitants. Streetclock draws on the aesthetic and temporal issues that saturate public spaces.
