This Clock Knits a Scarf and Tells the Time
© Miriam Lehnart 365 KNITTING CLOCK
Everyone has been writing about the rocking chair that knits you a hat, but what about a clock that will knit you a scarf? Of course it does take a year, which could be a long wait if you are feeling cold...
It's the creation of Siren Elise Wilhelmsen, a Norwegian artist who makes functional and sustainable design with personality and a sense of humour.
The clock knits 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and at the end of the year you will have a 2 metre long scarf, in mustard yellow wool.
365 is stitching the time as it passes by. It is knitting 24 hours a day and one year at the time, showing the physical representation of time as a creative and tangible force. After 365 days the clock has turned the passed year into a 2-m long scarf. Now the past can be carried out in the future and the upcoming year is hiding in a new spool of thread, still unknitted.
