Clock expresses time by using lights and shapes. Its tessellation is composed of sixty triangles and twelve rhombs, which represent hours, minutes and seconds. It is a system where the amount of illuminated shapes tells the time. By switching lights on and off, it aims to create a sense of time rather than an exact representation. Through symmetrical and asymmetrical patterns, it displays a cyclic division of time that forms the core of all clocks.

The work originates from a cross-disciplinary course Crystal Flowers in Halls of Mirrors: Mathematics meets Art and Architecture held in Aalto University.
