Exquisite Clock is a clock made of numbers taken from everyday life seen, captured and uploaded by people from all over the world. Its about creativity, collaboration and exchange.The project consists of a participatory IPhone application and website that feeds data to different clocks installed around the world.
Through this application or the website www.exquisiteclock.org, users are invited to collect and upload images of numbers that can be found in different contexts around them objects, surfaces, landscapes, cables anything that has a resemblance to a number. People viewing the clock can change digits, upload or choose between different sets of numbers a clock made by iphone pictures, numbers made of vegetables, or clouds, or garments etc.
The clock has an online database of numbers an exquisite database at its core. This supplies the IPhone, website and interconnected physical platforms. These physical installations might be LCD monitors hanging in a gallery space, tiny cellphone screens or large scale public monitors. The principle is that all instances of the exquisite clock access the single exquisite database forming a conversant network made by different perceptions of time.
