A million Times is an ongoing project by Humans since 1982 that continues the conceptual exploration of one of their first collaborative projects The ClockClock (2008) to create a kinetic sculptures that present clocks as art objects, unleashed from a solely pragmatic existence.

The hands of multiple analogue clocks display the time in a digital format every minute, between which they are programmed to perform abstract, dance-like choreographies. The first of these works A million Times 288 was first exhibited in 2013 and since then the project has developed in ambition, complexity and scale to include the 504 clockface commission A million Times at Changi, one of the largest kinetic sculptures in the world.

Different versions of this project have been realised for private commissions and public collections, including Platform L, Seoul; Changi Airport, Singapore; Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Atlanta.
