oft

"oft" is a kinetic sculpture that uses the semiotic system of analog clocks. 60 serially arranged clock dials with slightly shifted hand positions form a coherent spatial body in the appearance of a helix. When the chronometers are started simultaneously, the helix begins to move. The clock hands, usually intended for a two-dimensional view, become design elements of a three-dimensional body set in motion.
