Clock that ‘Eats Time’

A clock which has no hands or numbers and “eats time” has gone on display.

The Midsummer Chronophage is inspired by the idea that everyone experiences time differently. Dr John C Taylor designed the timepiece, which is controlled by a Chronophage – a mythical beast which eats time. It sits on top of the clock face and slowly opens its jaws for 59 seconds before snapping shut on the 60th and eating the minute.
