A million Times 80 Copper is part of an ongoing series of kinetic sculptures by Humans since 1982 that presents clocks as objects unleashed from a solely functional existence. Through this series clock-faces, a universally recognised symbol of time, are manipulated by programming the hour and minute hands to spin individually and in formation to visually represent the abstract concept of time while continuing to report real time.

Marrying conceptual enquiry with technically challenging design and engineering processes, A million Times is not so much about time-telling as it is about designing the passing of time.
