LINE synchronizes color data with time. Chromatic patterns are manipulated into a clock with Hours, Minutes, and Seconds displayed in amounts of Red, Green, and Blue light. This creates timed color patterns that shift throughout the day yet remains fully functional as a readable clock. This encourages the viewer to think about the changing perception of color that unfolds through each day.
