The Salvador Dali Inspired Melting Clock
The Melting Clock is inspired by Salvador Dali's 1931 painting entitled "The Persistence of Memory". Some refer to Dali's work as a visual brain teaser and others as an attack on the rational considering how Dali's uses Hyper Realism to provoke thought. Dali's work is a surreal dreamscape of a hot and dry desolate landscape with hard and soft elements at play. Hard objects become inexplicably limp, clocks melt there by bending time, and metal attracts ants like rotting flesh amongst other unusual elements. Dali seemingly created The Persistence of Memory to symbolize the inevitable entropy of time.
Time is the most fundamental component of human existence yet the biggest mystery of all time. We try to define, measure and even label it all in the attempt to gain a better understanding of it. The majority of the world tends to think of it as a continuous flow, however Albert Einstein has defined it as a series of snapshots that unfold moment after moment after moment. Unfortunately, we will probably never understand the true essence of time though it will continue to be time and therefore behave as it will.
However, while we continue to try and dissect time so to speak, we can still have loads of fun tracking every event of our daily lives whether in our workspace or at home with the Salvador Dali inspired Melting Clock. The Melting Clock essentially illustrates that time is fluid in an entertaining way. The Surreal "melted" surface can sit on a bookshelf or the edge of a desk and yet still function as a timepiece, it features a polished casing and precision quartz movement for highly accurate time keeping, it has a carefully designed optical illusion face readable from any angle despite it's irregular shape and can display time using Roman numerals providing an antique touch. The Melting Clock: COOL! TRENDY! TRIPPY!
