A smartphone, tablet, or computer... that's how most people check the time these days. Clocks, especially antique ones, are becoming somewhat obsolete and are used more for decoration than anything else.

In this contest, we are going to use these ancient devices and transform them!

You probably are familiar with the melting clocks from the famous painting "The persistence of memory" by Dali. Let's skip that concept and not use it in this contest. Instead, come up with something original that has never been done before. Use your imagination and design a truly crazy clock that has features nobody has ever thought of! Or, are you going for abstraction?

The clocks you use are not limited to wall clocks or cuckoo clocks. Any device that measures some form of time or duration, is usable for this contest. Atypical examples would be pendulums, water clocks, or hourglasses.

You can do anything you want with the picture(s), as long as your picture contains at least 1 clock in any form described above.

If you are seeking inspiration, have a look at this contest on Pxleyes from 4.5 years ago. A clock that is also... a time machine!

No idea where to start? Here are some pictures you can use:

Good luck!

Thank you Ziz I’ve been in pain for two months after lifting my mother off the ground (dementia) and I slipped a disc. I had to do part of this chop standing up.

Pleased to have managed to make it good enough 😎👍🏼 Thanks to everyone who voted

I really like your creation but it could be improved by raising the horizon line higher. The vanishing point on the horizon does not fit with the box. When we are looking down on the top of a cube the horizon line should also be above the cube.

Do you realize you left the watermark on.

lol I kind of knew but it doesnnt make that big of a difference.

retired avatarLevel 9
retired replied to Bax_Rig :

I disagree, it does make a difference, one, it may be a copyrighted picture, two, it would show off your cloning skills, and three, you pasted the clock facing in the wrong direction

Nice message but I don't see any clock in your picture. Is it Photoshop or just a photography?
This is how Google translated your note: "it's time to switch to the Earth-use diet The crazy hours of reckless land use are over!"

borovik777 replied to Zizounai :

Это фотография...... обработанная в Ф.Ш. Конечно смысл мой заложен абстрактный - вверху Арктика, черный цвет - земля . Идея возникла что люди необдуманно пользуются недрами Земли и пора перестать " пить и жрать ее по свински" и пользоваться ей обдуманно , не забывая о последующих поколениях .

Zizounai replied to borovik777 :

This is brillant symbolic, but according to the theme of this contest there should be a watch, a clock or any device measuring time in the image. Moreover, it would enhance your argumentation.
