About

Emotional clock looks at  human emotions thru the lens of emoticons.
Emoticons are combinations of punctuation marks and alphanumerics that, put in a certain order, create pictograms of human faces, mimicking offline facial expressions. Thru their extremely simplistic form, they can transcend language and cultures, becoming a universal way to represent deep human feelings.

Drawing its inspiration from old digital clocks, thee light piece made of 8 fluorescent lights - some flashing and others always on - switch every second from to ":)" to ":(".
