Sundial Watches – Futurefarmers
Sunday, 8 January 2006
The cultivators at Futurefarmers have come up with some interesting conjectural sculptures that explore the possibilities of interfacing with nature. Take for example these Sundial Watches, elegantly constructed from paper, string and foam. The watches question our reliance on technological devices in our daily lives and offer us the possibility of experiencing time from the first hand source, the sun. It further negates the importance of the work-a-day clock in favour of experiencing time from a astro-cosmological point of view.
Photosynthesis Robot posits the idea of a machine driven by plant phototropism (the movement of plants towards the sun) and Botanical Gameboy looks at the idea of powering a gaming network utilising power harnessed entirely from lemons!
