About-Time: Colour Coded Clock


Thu, May 26th, 2011 11:00 by capnasty NEWS

Here is a neat concept that would probably be appreciated by graphic designs and colour aficionados alike: Louie Rigano, a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, has designed a clock that uses colours, rather than numbers, to show what time it is. Definitely not something for the anal retentive time-keeper or the colour-blind.

About-Time is a clock that challenges our power of perception and intuition. Featuring a constantly changing composition, through both color and form, it invites us to view the idea of time from a fresh perspective. Three translucent circles, each one's size equivalent to the corresponding hand of traditional clocks, pivot atop a larger white circle. The location of the circles' outer most points refer to the time. Traditional clocks, utilizing written numbers, rely on reading the information. This clock relies solely on visual information in the form of varying colors and shapes. Time is manifested into a new and purely visual language.
