# Abstract Clocks

These gradiental clocks are the result of experimenting with abstract ways to represent time.

They were built for Electric Objects, check out the showcase.

## Daily Rotation

This clock displays the time in 24 hour format. With the inner circle's dark edge, and the outer circles light edge pointing to the current time.

For Example:
• If the time were 12 O'Clock (midnight) the inner circles dark edge would be pointing perfectly to the top.
• If the time were 6AM the inner circles dark edge would be pointing to the right (3 oclock on a regular clock)
• If the time were midday, the inner circles dark edge would be pointing directly down.

## Hourly Rotation

This clock behaves similarly to a regular wall clock, with the inner circle's dark edge pointing where the minute hadn would, and the other pointing to where the hour hand would be.

For Example:
• If the time were 12 O'Clock (midnight) the inner circles and outer dark edge would be pointing perfectly to the top.
• If the time were 9.30AM the inner circles dark edge would be pointing to the bottom (30 minutes), and the outer edge pointing to the right (the 9 on a regular clock)
• If the time were midday, again, both darker edges would be facing the top.

## Rise and Fall

This clocks gradients rise and fall throughout the day. With the outer gradient mirroring the inner.

For Example:
• If the time were 12 O'Clock (midnight) the inner circle will be mostly filled with the darker orange, as though the sun was down.
• If the time were 6AM the inner circles gradient would be about centered, equal parts the ligher and darker colors.
• If the time were midday, the inner circle would be mostly light. From this point onwards, the gradients will receed with time, returning to the darker colors at midnight.

## Hourly Rise and Fall

This clocks inner gradient rises and then quickly falls once each hour, the outer gradient rises and falls gradually throughout the day.

For Example:
• If the time were 12 O'Clock (midnight) the inner circle will be mostly filled with the lighter white, as well as the outer gradient with the darker color.
• If the time were 6.30AM the inner circles gradient would be about centered, equal parts the ligher and darker colors. The outer, a little over 1/4 of the way up.
• If the time were 12.45, the inner circle would be mostly dark (75%). The outer gradient, will be mostly light, but will be falling back to dark again, as we've passed the middle of the day.

## Rainbow

This clock is a color circle, rotating through time on a 12 hour schedule. The best way to understand it, is to know which colors match each time.

For Example:
• If the time were 12 O'Clock, the clock would be split between yellows and greens.
• If the time were 6AM or PM, the clock would be spit between purples and reds.
• If the time where 9AM or PM, the clock would be split between reds and oranges.
