The Time Machines collection consists of compositions celebrating the mechanical precision and sensory pleasure of a traditional clock in a purely artistic manner.
Each variation exposes the inner workings of the clock mechanism and places the motion of each gear, spring, and axle in the spotlight.
In addition to the skeletonized appearance, the Time Machines are hand-finished in eye-catching colour palettes of black, silver or gold, which enhance their modern architecture.
In either finish, each kinetic sculpture transforms a space both visually and audibly.
The TM3 runs for eight days driven by double spiral springs and axles supported by ball bearings with non-contact seals to reduce friction. This piece also incorporates patent-pending anchor arms built with
The suspension system transforms the kinetic energy of the movement to the spring so that very little power is wasted.
Due to its light aluminium structure, TM3 weighs only 10 kg while measuring 1.3 meters (4.25 feet / model “Kaspar” & “Anna”) or 1.8 meters (6 feet / model “Johann” & “Paulina”).
It can also be mounted on a wall or display as a freestanding art piece.
