Time Probes

From rAndom (brilliant bastards behind the pixel-roller)

"The time probes were formed around the principle of an analogue clock. The first iteration of the probes were constructed out of a quartz clock movement, a clip board and piece of card with a task and a clock face. The tasks were a set of questions based around how people perceive their sense of time from a moment, a day or a lifetime...In certain tasks, the participant was asked to attach the second, minute or hour hand to the analogue movement and wait for a time in which they felt compelled to fill in the clock face. Other tasks simply asked them to look back in time or look forward and make plans"

I liked this participant's idea of blocking time in terms of objects and tools used. Something interesting there...
