"Standard Time" is a Full-Scale Version of How the Tiny Men in My Alarm Clock Work

Here's an idea: make a 40-foot tall digital clock display out of wood, then get 70 friends to change the slats 1,611 times so that it keeps accurate time for 24 hours. Wait, someone did that already?

"Standard Time" is the work of artist Mark Formanek, who filmed the whole thing as a documentary. I'm sure there's some deeper point about the indefatigable march of time and mankind's role in a digital age, but I mostly like it for the time-lapse footage.
