The Schipol Clock from the Real Time Series #ArtTuesday
If you’re walking through the Schipol Airport in Amsterdam, you might see a guy in blue overalls stuck inside a semi-transparent box, painting an analog clock face. Then, a minute later, the worker erases the clock face and draws a new one. IS someone really in there? No. Does the clock tell the real time? Yes. Here’s more from Maarten Baas:
The clock is installed in the international terminal of the Amsterdam airport (AMS) and is one of the last things travellers see before departing the Netherlands. The worker’s blue overalls, yellow rag and red bucket pay homage to the famous Dutch artist, Piet Mondrian.
