The Last Clock face portrays the last 12 hours, 60 minutes and 60 seconds as a never-ending abstract composition using a webcam.
Just like any analog clock, Last Clock has three hands: seconds, minutes and hours. The hands, however, are made of a pixel-wide slice of live video that gets scanned to the clockface. With different refresh rate for each hand, the three time circles reflect the rhythms of the space at different temporal resolutions.
Last Clock camera feed is streamed over the internet. Connecting to a meaningful remote location, one can see glimpses of the pace of the place together with the time, conveying a presence but not surveillance.
What's New in Version 3.0
The long overdue update of the Lastclock app is a complete rewrite. It uses WebRTC to make it easy to stream the data stream over the internet. It is an iOS native implementation of the newly built http://lastclock.net webapp, that runs on webRTC and webGL enabled browsers.
The Lastclock portal runs android, iOS, MacOS X, Windows and Linux devices, where all but the iOS version runs natively in a web browser.
