58”50 — Animated clock

ECAL / Fabien Roy, 2019

Collaboration: SBB Swiss Railway Company, ABB Robotics, Mobatime

The Swiss Federal Railway company is synonymous of punctuality and cutting-edge technologies.

In 1944, Hans Hilfiker created a station clock by proposing a smooth sweeping second hand system among others innovations.

This iconic reference of Swiss design celebrate this year its 75th Anniversary.

My project is an hommage to this clock through a contemporary reinterpretation of the traditional swiss automated clock.

I propose a performance through an interaction between a robotic arm and the clock. By using the latest technology I transmit a strong message for the customers, «be sure, the Swiss Federal Railway company still use the cutting-edge technologies to satisfy you».
