A collection of twentyfour variations on the theme “clock” created for HeK
Each of these clocks shows time in a distinct form.
The result is a sequence of numbers, letters or punctuation marks
animated in different ways.
A few of the more common ones are not part of this collection, for example word-, binary-, hex– or emoji-clock;
but we can find time represented as the number that is the sum of all the digits of the moment
or we can be surprised by a little cuckoo that comes out of its house every thirty minutes.
Each clock can be isoltated (and turned into a fullscreen web app) by clicking on its title.
