TIME IS AN ARBITRARY CONCEPT
- Surreal “melted” clock that still keeps accurate time
- Perfectly balanced to hang off of any flat surface

Time is an illusion – lunchtime, doubly so. The truth is, time is an arbitrary construct created by limited beings trying to make sense of causality. We perceive time as a sequence of events in a progressive chain of cause and effect. Were we to lose our perspective of cause and effect, time would lose meaning entirely, and it would seem to sag and melt like soft cheese left out in the sun – metaphorically speaking, of course.
So when performing truly boring tasks, for example: work, we require time pieces to remind us that the passage of time persists without us even being aware of them. Clocks on the walls, in our computers, or in digital watches (which is a pretty neat idea). They show us the passage of time, but they don’t show us the ooey-gooey consistency of time that has stretched out into something barely recognizable.
This clock, however, succeeds where those others fail. Here we can accurately see the passage of time whilst being reminded that time drips and flows like fatty rotten milk. Don’t worry, though – even if the clock is stretched and pulled like taffy, it still tells accurate time… unless you’re spiraling towards the event horizon of a black hole, or traveling at relativistic speeds where time tends to slow and stretch. Maybe time really is an illusion?
