Complexly Patterned Time-Tellers
The Moiree Clock by Jana Ferreira is Dizzyingly Abstract

By: Meghan Young (Superstar) Oct 29, 12

The Moiree Clock may be mistaken for a psychedelic poster from the ‘60s. Nevertheless, the complex pattern of this creation does serve a higher function than simply decorating the wall. Although it doesn’t seem to be the case at all, the Moiree Clock tells the time. The dizzying pattern is created in such a way that it isn’t as abstract as it first appears.

Designed by Jana Ferreira, the Moiree Clock is inspired by the moiree effect, which is often achieved when two grids are overlaid at an angle or when they have slightly different mesh sizes. According to Ferreira, “The Moiree Clock promotes a reflection about time—its abstract and real dimension—and about existence—its infinity number of parts and the unicity of life.”
