Archiving 2019/ Step3: The Infinite Clock

  • Concluding the Archive

  • Step Three: Recreating Graphics > The¬†Infinite Clock
    Summarizing the archive of digital duplication v.s. biological evolution and distilled ideas down to a specific direction which focused on how time is seen differently in terms of humans' understanding of the self. Constructed a conceptual clock for indicating time in the digital space.

    I tried to create my own graphic representing the infinite expansion of time and the self in the post internet/digital space. Design elements were intentionally chosen: 
    -the clock emoji with pointers taken off
    -checkerboard pattern overlaying on top
    -unicode written in Optima which is a humanistic typeface inspired by letterings found on tombstones of the cemetery of the Basilica di Santa Croce in Florence
