Facetime taken literally

These clocks are a little uncomfortable to look at, although they are backed by a rather interesting concept. Named Patience, this series of clocks uses the human face as a time-keeping device. The left and right eyes act as hands, looking in the direction the hand would face. The mouth acts as a seconds counter, periodically smacking to help you count the seconds while also making the sound of a clock’s ticks.

The clock is literally a screen that displays a human face. Japan based creative studio We+ made this quirky clock by video-recording real human faces in three different parts (each eye and the mouth) and merged them seamlessly together in a 24 hour looped video. I wonder what it would be like if it had an alarm feature!
