Rotating screw becomes DIY clock


Bomi Kim's DIY clock-making concept, The Meaning of Time, has a certain Korokova Milk Bar minimalism to it. Essentially, it's just a plastic screw, with minute and hour shafts horologically rotating according to the usual standards of time-keeping. You simply smash it into a planar surface, stuff two objects through the holes, and voila: your own clock. I think, though, that the real possibilities of such a device will only become apparent when someone on Modblog hammers one into his pineal gland, tattoos his face with digits and inserts his fingers through the holes whenever someone asks him for the time.
