"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.
