Omar Cheikh-Ali – Project 04 Abstract Clock

With this project I wanted to illustrate time by virtue of expanding circles, seconds are in the center, minutes outside that, and hours even further outside of that. In addition to this, I came up with two different ways of illustrating the clock (after finding out that the hour() function runs on a 24 hour timeline), I created a 12 and 24 hour version. The 12 hour version distinguishes between am and pm by the color of the background: the AM is shown through a yellow background, while the PM is shown through a dark blue background.

The 24 hour clock in comparison, is shown with a golden line at the 12:00 noon mark in order to tell what time of day it is.
