Word Clock

Word Clock is an original digital art work for macOS, iOS and web. The current time is highlighted within a set of words that can tell any possible time.

The open source code repository has an archive of versions I created for several different platforms and programming languages since 2003.

I collaborated with many kind supporters from around the world to translate Word Clock into over 30 languages. This required writing a small domain-specific language to express unusual time logic in different regions.

Word Clock features in Numbers in Graphic Design and has been exhibited at the Science Museum in London. It is open source and free to download.
