What time is it?


What time is it? The answer could be "8 p.m." as we can see from the clock on the St. Lazare station in the background. However, the sculpture by Arman which was placed in front of the station in 1985 is called “Time for everyone”, so please help yourself; I hope you find an hour which suits you!

It's almost 11 o'clock in the morning in the cloudy Helsinki.

But, if time is money, that surely is a money tree! Cash and go!

Plus de 10 heures déjà et pas encore habillée. Je vais peut-être choisir 8h à la place pour avoir le temps de faire quelque chose de ma journée.

How Interesting. Never seen anything like this before. Thanks for sharing!

So, to thise of you who asked if they all work; the answer is NO. But I guess that there must be at least 24 of them, so you would probably find an hour which is fairly close to the real hour. ... and it's called "Time fore everyone".
Anyhow, this is a real piece of art (you may like it or not), by Arman. Not too many people pay attention to it, being in a hurry, to or from the station.

What you say about people not paying too much attention at these clocks is quite true. More even : when I used to go by this station to go to work I even HATED these clocks for reminding me that I was late and I had to run. Now that I changed my way of living I can appreciate them ;o)

lyliane said...

And me I am always in the "Eure"!!
Je n'avais jamais fait attention à ces pendules, je regarderai quand j'arriverai de mon Eure, bientôt je pense.

Peter said...

shionge:
I sincerely hope that you will have that!

catherine:
At least you saw them!

cuckoo:
I guess you find some watches allowing you to read the time all around the world - and in a more practical format!

lyliane:
Un très bon jeu de mots!

Cergie said...

Moi qui ne porte jamais de montre, il ne faut pas que je me fie à celles là alors...
L'heure on la trouve partout : sur le fronton des gares justement et sur les tickets de caisse

Cuckoo said...

Oh yeah, I hope so !!
