Time goes by, or goes round. It goes round at least on clocks, the best way humans have found so far to express both the infinity and the repetition of time. 24 hours a day, and always a new day to come. Representing time is such an never-ending issue that artists cannot resist to create with it.
We have spotted a few creations playing on the moves of clock's hands, on the forms they create, on the time they embody. This is our Kinetic Clocks selection.
Humans since 1982, Florian Jenett and Alicia Eggert gathered numerous clocks and make their hands go round to make appear surprising messages.

Eternity (full 12 hours) from Alicia Eggert on Vimeo.
Other creators like Sander Mudler and Tristan Zimmermann prefer to work with only one clock and to play on their hands moves.
Another question creators like to deal with is the nature of the time available on clocks. Most of the time, it is hours, divided in minutes, divided in seconds. Che-wei Wang and Tobias Revell go backward and work respectively on clocks showing a century, or a second.
You know other creations dealing with time representation ? It's not too late to share it with us.
