Last Clock by Jussi Angesleva & Ross Cooper:
Last Clock is like a familiar analogue clock, it has a second hand, a minute hand and an hour hand. The hands are arranged as concentric circles, the outermost being seconds, the middle represents minutes and the innermost – hours.
The major difference to a regular clock is that the hands of ‘Last Clock’ are made from live video feeds and as they rotate round the face, they leave a trace of what has been captured by the camera. Thus the clock face displays the last minute hour and last 12 hours as it’s history.
