this is a super simple clock app that you can leave running when your phone in its dock. it's basically a digital sculpture. a box, turning on its own axis at a constant speed. the size of the box reflects the actual time the width, height and depth are hours, minutes and seconds. 23 times a day, for one second, the box is a cube. thats it. thanks for the suggestion from Andreas Gysin himself!
