This Clock Uses a Human Eye to Represent the Passing of Time

We+, a Tokyo-based contemporary design company, designed a human clock face, which uses human eyes to demonstrate the passing of time.

Giving an entirely new meaning to a "clock face," this project titled 'Patience' features a hyper-realistic and biological reiteration of the classic timepiece. The clock's eyes replace a traditional analog clock's hands -- the right eye indicates hours, while the left indicates minutes. As time passes, the eye rotates in a circular motion, appearing to move into positions a real human eye could never achieve. In addition to the clock's already bizarre facade, the mouth frequently opens and closes to represent passing seconds, creating an unsettling deviation from the clock's standard form.

This eerie and artful project represents the heavy burden time has on the human spirit and body.
