Daily life wall clock
This wall clock doesn’t indicate time by numbers and hands. Instead, the figures of a grandmother, grandchild and dog represent hours, minutes and seconds. Silhouettes of nature and daily life are arranged around the clock, and each figure moves through these scenes to represent the time.

The Daily Life Clock from BGM project doesn’t indicate time by hands or numbers. Instead, the clock represents time by figures like a grandmother, a grandchild, and a dog. The grandmother represents hours, the grandchild minutes and the dog is used for seconds. Each figure rotates around a globe and passes through various scenes. The scenes are repeated continuously without much variation. For example, one scene has each figure passing through a forest of trees. The clock is an attempt to embody parts of daily life in the form of nature and people. The clock is a wall-mounted parable that reminds people of the monotony of everyday life. The clock is also a reminder of mortality by using figures such as a the grandchild and grandmother. Some people might find the clock depressing, however there are numerous fans of the clock that love the concept. The design of the clock is clearly engaging and it provides a unique way to tell time.
