where the witches dance

Hmm… it’d be very much like in George Carlins quote - look at your watch and still don’t know the time.
I like it :D

Hey, do you want to troll your friends and make it so they can never tell what time it is? “Could you look at the clock, Dave?” “Yeah, sure, wait, whaaaaaahhhttttt????”

It’s called About-Time, it’s by RISD grad and Fulbright scholar Louie Rigano,  and it eschews directional clock hands entirely for what we guess you’d  call clock blobs — primary-colored circles that wind around a white  face creating new color combinations as they pass each other.
The second hand is big and yellow; the minute hand blue and  medium-sized; and the hour hand red and small. For each, the circle’s  outermost point corresponds to the time. So if red is closest to the 2  o’clock position and blue is closest to the 10, then it’s 2:50. If  they’re all lined up against the 12 o’clock mark (and resemble a sliced  hard-boiled egg, as above), it’s 12:00. The hands are made out of  translucent acetate and mounted on a plastic backing, which hides the  clock mechanism underneath.
