As time flows at different speeds depending on the person and situation, one’s attempt is conveyed unpredictably because each individual’s relativistic time runs at a different speed. We are physically on the Earth but we may share the same senses in different times: it is daytime in Seoul while it is dawn in Hague. My time seems to stand still but the other’s time may flow quickly. Developed from Time Zone #001, this work represents the concept of time difference with the hands of a clock rotating from top to bottom as a medium of emotion in a three-dimensional space. This work of kinetic art is a three-dimensional interpretation of the overlap of several clocks with the hands of a clock referring to different time. It appears as a clock whose shadow spreads across the floor.

As each individual’s watch runs at a different speed, one’s time can be conveyed unpredictably even if people share the same thought. People may have the same senses even though it is daytime in a place where one stays while it is dawn in a place where the other stays. The Time Zone series represents the concept of time in a relative thinking through a three dimensional expression of the hands of an clock as the medium with a vivid presence. 

The series is a concrete representation of the messages time conveys while interpreting the sundial’s analog principle and the motor’s mechanism. The hands of a clock in this series refer to different times, displaying the mechanism of a clock with the shadows of those hands.
