Eindhoven-based artist Daan Spanjers has created a new way of telling time that is more of a reflection on how light changes, rather than the accuracy chronology. This series reflects on how time and light intersect through out the course of the day.
His series of clocks, “Atmosphere” try to emulate the unpredictability of colors that appear and disappear throughout the course of the day. Spanjers is trying to single out different moments of atmospheric compositions and is attempting to collect those color combinations over time.
“By framing spectrums of colors these clocks speak of the transitional qualities of color and time.”
Spanjers looks at things like juxaposition, dust, water, geolocation and perspective to help determine specific hues, looking at everything from early-morning horizons to total darkness at midnight.
Atmosphere is the first in a series of time piece color compositions, from Spanjers that captures time, light, and atmosphere in circular-form.
