a 130cm x 130cm (50″ x 50″) clock
Ok – I can finally talk about it. Last year, I was approached by an architectural firm in Brisbane to make a massive clock for them. They supplied an amazing concept drawing and asked me if it was possible.
After a bit of a chat dividing the workload between us and figuring out how we can make it a reality, we decided that they would engage a signwriter to laser cut a sheet of wood for the stencil, and mount baffles behind it and do all of the mechanical work, and I would provide the electronics package to make it light up for them.
It took a couple of months of designing, but I built a high current driver that can be used for making clocks that are up to 60 inches across, using double strips of illuminating LEDs across each word – nice and bright!
It has been installed, and is beautiful – A wall that is a clock!. The architect is busy getting commercial photos made which I will share when I get them. In the meantime, this is the clock itself (Turned off)
Smiles a quite – happy – smile!
