This industrial style flip clock is inspired by a still taken from an episode of Decalogue, a 1989 Polish television drama series directed by Krzysztof Kieślowski. The series consists of ten one-hour films set in a large housing estate in socialist Warsaw. The clock’s mechanism was intercepted and manipulated to interrogate the system of time as an organizing principle, while simultaneously rendering it unpredictable and corrupt.
