"Hourglass" October 2020
4.5m high x 2.2m square; aluminium, glass, acrylic, solar panels, LED lighting
With this clock tower, the University has created a focal point for the student body within a newly developed outdoor courtyard. The form has evolved from the hourglass, a timekeeping device invented in 8th century France. The clocks and lighting are powered by solar energy to honour Professor Jai Singh’s research on solar cells at the Charles Darwin University.
