The new clock face

“Created by NewMediology (Danqing Shi), Last clock is a clock app that uses popular slit scan technique to keep you in factual time, human time and remote time. Just like any other analog clock, the app has three hands: one for seconds, minutes and hours. The hands, however, are made of a slice of live video that gets scanned to the clockface. With different refresh rate for the three hands, the three time circles reflect the rhythms of the space at different temporal resolutions. The app also allows you to stream the last clock camera feed over the internet. Last Clock was originally developed in 2002 by Jussi Ängeslevä and Ross Cooper when at the Royal College of Arts in London.

That’s what it says on the Creative Applications Network site and to be perfectly honest, I really have no clue what it all means. But you have to admit, this iPad app creates some sublimely beautiful graphics. I’d have these on my wall if I could.

Perhaps I could mount a line of iPads across the lounge wall.
