Wooden Puzzle Clock
Owner & Collaborators
As a summary of what Experience and Engagement means with respect to FabLife, I decided to make something that I would use every day but would also stand as a metaphor for me to respect each time I used it. I am a habitual late riser and always need something to remind me what time it is, so it was only natural that I make a clock for my final project. I tried to apply the concepts I learned from the Kumiki puzzle project to make it difficult to open to clock and turn off the alarm. In doing so, it would be difficult to go back to sleep after spending so much effort trying to turn the alarm off! The puzzle is very simple and only requires two steps, but it also features a plant on the top to symbolize the circle of life, and thus the circle of time that we live in. Plants grow, and when they die they are used to make wooden products such as the clock I made. When the wood disintegrates, it becomes nourishment for the soil to help grow more trees.
