A circular clock (82 cm in diameter) made from vacuum formed carbon fiber, produced by Marc in Sydney. The clock has a raised pedestal form on its rear which includes clockworks and back plate. Two concentric circles moulded on the front, one is a white spherical marker denoting hours and the other is a minute marker. Marc devised a system employing magnetically-propelled dots that seem to magically orbit the face of the clock. The spheres travel in the circles, as the hands of a clock.
