This is a “sand” Zen garden clock made by the London-based design duo, Bike and Begum Ayaskan from Studio Ayaskan. This creation is “a meditative play on the landscape art of kare-sansui”.
For the first 12 hours of the day, the rake-edge of the zen garden clock’s single hand creates a series of concentric rings through its sandy surface. Then, in preparation for the next 12 hours, the clock hand flips over and smoothes it all out again.
It’s not a practical clock, but it is a clock nonetheless.
What are your thoughts on this one?
