雀鐘 The pica clock

There is an ancient Chinese fairytale saying that there is one lovely couple who was separated by the god on two stars. They can only meet once a year in every seventh of July. In that day the pica bird will form a bridge so that the poor couple can meet each other.
The pica clock is a clock designed for people in different timezone. The red hand represents seconds, the black hand represents minutes and the moving lines represent hours. When two lines intersect, it means it's time to chat. And the more the lines intersect the better timing to talk to each other. This project was a special clock I designed for my ex-girlfriend, who is going to Sweden for her master study.
