    Metronome

    One Union Square South
    New York, NY 10003
    Metronome is a large public art installation created by Kristin Jones and Andrew Ginzel. A round circular void releases puffs of white steam throughout the day while seemingly meaningless numbers displayed actually represent the time. If the clock reads 0704369X1235516, it means that it is 7:04 A.M and 36.9 seconds and that there are 16 hours, 55 minutes and 23.1 seconds remaining until midnight.
