Seventy workers are building a wooden time display in real time: a work that involves 1611 changes within a 24 hour period.

Seamlessly documented and shot on video, this 24 hours movie is synchronized with your device time and can be used as a clock.

The Standard Time project is a sculpture about time and a race against the clock. Even though the workers are trying hard to construct every single minute, they are constantly on the verge of failing.

Standard Time is an artwork by Mark Formanek, realized by Datenstrudel.

Please note:
The Standard Time Project is a large application. Download and syncing times can be longer.

Because of the large size it's preferable to download on your computer using iTunes, and then sync with your device. Downloading directly to your device is possible via a wireless connection, but for best results keep your device awake for the entire download.
