Watch it happen:
Stockholm based studio Humans Since 1982 beautifully structured a digital clock using 288 analog clocks. The piece they call "A Million Times" begins with the simple analog clocks at their starting point (around 3:45). All 288 clocks are arranged on the wall and run independently, powered by 576 individual motors, their hands spinning to run through hypnotic patterns and display the time digitally. The entire installation is connected to custom made software and operated from an iPad.
