Watching the clock has always meant that you couldn’t wait for time to pass, this clocks will make you watch, and enjoy every moment.

The clock at Schiphol Airport is actually a 12 hour-long video performance, featuring the designer, Maarten Baas painting, and repainting the clock’s hands each minute. It’s a good job Amsterdam has a lot to offer or I would never leave the airport.

I love when public spaces understand how important creativity is, the extra thought translates into so many things – and adds to the travel experience, and their expectations and memories of Amsterdam as a cool city where they think a little differently. Just leave extra time at the airport, and not for delays.
