is time an illusion?
wall clock by J.P.Meulendijks for JAN PAUL (www.janpaul.design)

“Time is an illusion"

Most wall-clocks have the same basic shape: round. Also the same looking time-indication by numbers or stripes.

“MOCAP” steps away from the basic. It’s appearance leans more to a piece of conceptual art ,then to a basic time-telling clock. MOCAP will catch your eye by changing shape when you walk around it. When you stand in front of the clock: the numbers are clear and visible. When you walk around it: numbers slowly dissolve, and seem to fall apart in little floating white balls.

This optical illusion results in a striking and intriguing piece. Inspired by “MOTION CAPTURE” technique used in the movie-industry.

material: wood (recycled) / dimensions: Height: 79 cm. / 31 inch width: 79 cm./ 31 inch depth: 10 cm./ 4 inch

color: Clock-face finished in matted black, causing the bright white balls to seemingly float in mid-air.

Clock-hands finished in anthracite so they are subtle visible. against the matted black background
