‘Intime’ is a fictional installation proposed to help citizens comprehend the "Climate Clock" in a park in NYC.
The ‘Climate Clock’, facing Union Square in Manhattan, is one of the city's iconic public artworks — counts down the critical time window to achieve zero carbon emissions. But according to New Yorkers, It is also considered “a meaningful clock that is hard to understand."
Our solution was to empower the numbers by resonating with real life narratives. We placed them in different time settings: Past, Present, and Future, and presented stories surrounding those times.
