Inspired by the poetry of Herman Hesse, this clock tells the time by lighting up various words. By the time you work out what the time is of course, it's probably moved on another 10 minutes.

Measuring 8 x 8 foot, three words are always lit up on the board, symbolizing the hour, minute and second. I've still got no idea how it works exactly, but it's like a big, arty version of a Tokyo Flash watch, isn't it. [Miss Moun via Moco Loco]
