Imperceptible time, an Arctic clock by Katie Turnbull

An app to observe time in an Arctic landscape. I am struck how often I read the word desolate used to describe the landscape of the Arctic regions, when it is anything but. It is my belief that we need to view the landscape from a non human perspective, discarding our perception of time.

Tolerate a loss of self and a loss of rationality by trusting in the capacity to recreate oneself in another character, another environment.
– Keats

This app is a reminder of the small moments, the jangly movements and the flourish of life that exists in these regions. Small increments of time are presented in the stones. The hour hand is made of larger landscape features and the background slowly shifts over twenty four hours.
