Over the past few years, a small factory in the east of Switzerland developed a new kind of clock. We call it “kineticART”. These clocks don’t just mark time — in fact, the purest expression of this concept are the kineticART units with no time indicators at all. Some of them have very discreet hands, that show the minute and hour, some of them even show the second and day of the week.

Other installations, such as the Four-Quadrant Art Work, are big enough to walk through and surround the visitor with four mechanical clock-pulse generators that give a majestic, harmonic swing of four long pendulums, creating a world of timelessness.
