Hands of the clock align to form a single line, once per hour for a single second. Catch a satisfying moment of it if you are lucky. The rest of the time the line is broken.
The clock is a symbolic object to focus on while reflecting on how we spend our days. Having no numbers or markers on the dial, yet reminding of the constant flow of events, the clock puts viewer at ease, while helping to form a habit of making sure that the hours we spend create the life we want.
“How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives. What we do with this hour, and that one, is what we are doing. ”
― Annie Dillard, The Writing Life
