p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · #958 Hands of Time


I was trying to figure out how to get the hands on the clock to move fast enough to blur and then stop motion at 3 o'clock with a flash, but all my solutions were too complex. I ended up just taking out the battery, setting the time to 3:00, and threw the whole clock onto my record player. The result ended up blurring the numbers as well as the clock hands, but I thought it had an interesting effect, even though it's not what I initially intended.

I loved what you did here! Using the record player was a stroke of genius !

The rotational blur conveys the ephemeral nature of time very well. Well done

This was an incredibly creative solution! Great thinking, and I feel like the end result was even better than what you were initially shooting for.
