Most of us lead busy lives. Rushing from one
commitment to another, whether it’s work or 
family or friends... 

Wouldn’t it be nice to have some extra time in the day?

Teaching technical drawing at the College I always enjoyed the lessons when we worked on traditional methods of bisecting angles and drawing polygons, using a compass. 3, 6, 12, 24 divisions are easy. So are 4, 8, 16, 32... Dividing the circle (and the day) in this way goes back thousands of years: to the ancient Babylonians and perhaps further back...
Why not try for a 25 hour day? for 25 divisions?

                                        And so my Extra Time Clock design was born. 25 divisions gives it 
                                            a sense of asymmetry, of being out of balance. An 
                                                encouragement to focus on “kairological” time rather than 
                                                “chronological”. “Time flies when you’re having fun” - that’s             
                                                    kairological time, it’s about what I’m doing and how it 
                                                       feels rather than counting minutes and seconds
                                                ... as the inscription under the clock at my school had it:
                                               Afflictis lentae, celeres gaudentibus horae
                                                        (the hours go slowly for those in pain, fast for those who are happy)
