Artist Bina Baitel gives viewers a contemplative perspective of time by gently moving forward without audible noise or sense of worry

French artist Bina Baitel has created a piece of art, called Lash Clock, that changes the perspective of time by replacing a clock’s hour and minute hands with long lashes. Baitel wanted to create a display that incorporated an aura of meditative relaxation rather to time passing rather than the audible ticking distraction a traditional clock has.

Though the lashes move slowly, they function as a normal clock would. The looser gap of the two sets of lashes stand for the hour hand, while the smaller, more steadily moving set stand for the minute hand, with the intention of getting viewers to experience time rather than sustain its weight.

Baitel was invited to the Grand-Hornu museum in Belgium for the Telling Time exhibit. Artists presenting their pieces were asked to create designs based on unique and fresh concepts of time. The show began on January 22, 2017 and ends on April 30, 2017.
