description
In the context of the museum, apart from symbolising the passage of time, a clock shifts the museum from the present into the future. On this poster it is reinterpreted: instead of the Roman numerals on the clock there are ordinary letters, which read out TODAY FOR TOMORROW (only twelve letters in the original). The hands do not indicate any given time, simply set off the word “Today” and so aid the legibility of the text. The wording is also included in English in the inset dial showing the passage of seconds.

The clock photographed was borrowed from the Timepieces Collection of the Museum for Art and Craft in Zagreb.
