‘The Present’ Annual Clock Tells Time In Seasons [Video]

‘The Present’ Annual Clock Tells Time In Seasons [Video]

Scott Thrift's kickstarter project uses gradients of color to mark the equinoxes and solstices throughout the year.

Inventor and filmmaker Scott Thrift, who created m ss n g p eces, has designed a clock that tells the time in seasons rather than minutes and hours. ‘The Present’ features subtle gradients of pure color and the hand takes a year to complete one clockwise rotation. The custom microprocessor moves it slightly every 6.08 days or 142 hours. The clock face is printed on metal, which is encased by a beveled glass front, and the hand is laser cut clear acrylic.

Thrift’s project is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter, with a goal of $24,000. If you pledge $120 or more, you can get your hands on ‘The Present’ if the project reaches its target.
