Circadian Bloom

Circadian Bloom

Circadian Bloom is a screen-based visual clock that tells the time through flowers. Inspired by Carl Linneas’s concept of a flower clock, a planted garden that would tell the time through the circadian rhythms of plants, this piece only shows flowers that have the quality of being able to keep time, blooming at the appropriate point of the day. Constructed using a series of complex algorithms and working with a machine that can keep time to an atomic level, visually it obscures this accuracy and forces the viewer to contemplate other, non-human ways of telling time and how conceptually time works.
