synæsthetic clock

Via Colossal, here is a wonderfully calm and mesmerising thing to look at: What Colour is it? from Berlin-based artist James E. Murphy, a little webpage that displays the time of day as its hexadecimal (internet browser) colour value, drifting through the hues as the seconds pass. Laughing Squid also features an earlier interpretation that can be downloaded as a screen saver. This would also make a nice face for the upcoming onslaught of so-called wearables—smart watches and other accessories. Synæsthesia refers to those lucky mutants who perceive, intuit sounds as having a tactile feel to them or days having a specific visual properties.
