All the time in the world

19Mar08

‘All the time in the world’ is a 22m long electroluminescent wall in Heathrow airport in London. It’s by Troika.

The piece extends the traditional format of a world clock by displaying time zones of places with exciting and romantic associations instead of the usual world capitals. So, it “allows passengers to extend their imagination to far distant locations as they enter the Lounges; the great natural wonders of the world, the highest mountains, the most beautiful lakes, the tallest buildings, the longest rivers, ancient cities, museums with untold treasures, dream islands and exotic deserts, thereby subverting the hard function of the traditional world clock into a poetic, fictional tool.”
