As a symbol of the passing of time of life, an art installation “Metronome” by Kristin Jones and Andrew Ginzel was placed at the southern edge of Union Square in 1999, which in any case causes two impressions: complete perplexity and confusion. What exactly does this clock want to tell us? First, let’s explain, it consists of two parts: a digital clock with an initially incomprehensible string of digits and a sculpture reminiscent of a magic wand.

The orange 15 digits are divided into two groups. The 7 left digits indicate the current time (hour, minute, second, tenth of a second). The 8 right digits must be read from right to left to find out how much time is left until midnight.
