ClockClock 24 is delivered with three meticulously programmed modes of our playful and distinctive clock hand choreographies. The choreographies are inspired by and draw upon natural, artistic and mathematical pattern formations

A program of up to 10 original clock hand choreographies will run for approximately 10 minutes before looping. In between the patterns, the artwork shows the time accurately once every minute.

Choreography Mode 1: Active
Mode 1 consists of ten different choreographies and shows accurate time once each minute. This is the studio’s favoured mode - it is the most varied and intricate.

Choreography Mode 2: Medium
Mode 2 is a selection of five of our most tranquil choreographies, between which ClockClock 24 continues to show accurate time each minute. This mode retains the curiosity of our original concept, with a more serene feel.

Choreography Mode 3: Quiet
In quiet mode ClockClock 24 displays only the time in our digital typography, without any clock-hand choreographies. For moments when only a fine-tuned timepiece is required.

All modes can display either 12 or 24 hour time as preferred.

ClockClock 24 does generate some discernible sound as the motors turn the clock hands, but it is not a loud noise.

Many of our collectors have remarked that the sound emitted is calming and perceptible as a natural noise, similar to waves on the shore or wind through grass.

The artworks are well suited to being placed in living and working spaces. We would not necessarily recommend installation in sleeping quarters for light sleepers.

The artwork can be changed to quiet mode for moments when silence is golden.


ClockClock 24 is delivered with a custom hanging template and hanging plate to enable simple and precise mounting of the artwork on the wall.

Attachment fixtures are provided, we request you ensure that they are suitable for the hanging wall prior to installation. 

Further details of the installation process can be found in the Artwork Manual (on the product page of our website), and will be provided with the artwork. 

ClockClock 24 should be installed by someone with basic technical knowledge who fully understands the installation manual. 

As the artwork weighs 18 kg (40 lbs), two people are required to mount ClockClock 24 on the wall.

Our hanging plate installation solution enables ClockClock 24 to be mounted on almost any surface such as brick, gypsum and wood walls with the correct anchors and screws. 

If you have a specific location in mind you are welcome to reach out and our specialists can gladly advise.

ClockClock 24 artworks are only suitable for indoor installation, and the optimum climate for the artwork is in a low-humidity environment. 

The parameters for safe installation of the artwork are at an Ambient temperature: +10°C and +35°C (50°F to 95°F) with a Maximum Relative humidity: 80%

We recommend the artwork is installed out of direct sunlight.
