Designed by artist Iván Navarro, the Eclipse Clock is a minimal art object and functional digital clock made of aluminum, LED lights, acrylic and glass. Why such a name? Because the circular clock face begins completely dark at midnight and becomes gradually illuminated as dawn approaches until entirely lit at noon. As the hours pass, the word ‘PETRIFICATION’ gradually appears before the viewer, intended as a deliberate reference to the archaeological process wherein historical time is consecrated through layers upon layers of organic sediments. Beneath the art object’s immaculate composition lies a deep meditation on the theme of eternity, as well as the relationship between light, time and motion.
