Put it, Clock

Ordinary Post-it notes are converted to form the face of an unmarked time-piece. The Post-its become the means to visualize time as a personal phenomenon. When they are attached, time is made conspicuous, upon their removal time again recedes beyond direct visual perception, existing intangibly at the edge of consciousness. This project evolved from the same concept as COVER IT; to propose a project for the MUJI Design Competition that makes use of existing objects. In this case; MUJI Post-it notes. PUT IT has a very simple structure; two different pieces of moulded plastic are fixed to an ordinary clock instead of to the clock hands. The outer ring rotates like the hour hand and the inner circle like the minute hand. A second time-zone can be marked with an additional Post-it in a different colour. Photography by Takumi Ota.
