Pie Clock

 

Two interlacing rotatable discs allow the user to create different sized sections of a circle which represent a certain period of time. In reference to the indicators, the segments can be used as a timer, visualizing the time left and gone by. One disc is labeled at every minute, the other showing a blank field or pattern. Depending on the segment and the indicator, periods from one minute to half a day can be created. This can remind you to take the pie out of the oven after 40 minutes or to set yourself a time window of 2 hours for meditation.  


The adjustable segments provide an additional yet subtle feature to a conventional clock. Time itself can be perceived in a  more conscious way through the interaction of the indicators with the segments. The indicators referring to a certain point of time and the segments visualizing the time already passed and ahead of now.
