Clocks create letters when synced

”O’Clock” by Nadine Grenier, a student at ESAD Strasbourg in France, is a kinetic installation made from 300 analog clocks set in sequence to display this sentence every 12 hours when their hands come into alignment: “le temps passe, et chaque fois qu’il y a du temps passe, il y a quelque chose qui s’efface.” The quote is from Jules Romains, a French poet, which roughly translates in “Time passes, and every time the time passes, there is something that fades”.
