I love this installation by Australian artist Rebecca Baumann. Automated Colour Field, originally commissioned by the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, is made up of 100 flip-clocks, laser cut colored paper, and batteries (a later version replaced the over 100 batteries with over 100 power regulating circuit boards designed by Cake Industries.) Such a clever and simple concept beautifully executed. Who wouldn’t want one of these in their home?

You can see the piece in action in the video above and you can see it being installed in the video below.
