There a BBS in China called “Let’s make a story”, the members of that BBS make stories together. Forexample, one person writes the beginning of a story, andthe rest of the story will be write by many other people. They are both reader and writer.
Inspired by that BBS,our design want people to co-create a story A story about LIFE A story about TIME one slide by one slide by drawing with their own hands
Through this design, people can create and seedifferent paths of different stages of different life
Design ThemeThe Riddle of The Sphinx What goes on four legs in the morning, on two legs at noon, and on three legs in the evening? Human
One day’s LifetimeCombine the story of life with the metaphor of time
People can only draw the stage of the life in a certain time
Elements of a life story’s one stage canvas of one slide of the story number of the time
What can people draw on the canvas? Like a story solitaire game, people can refer to the previous canvas to decide what to draw,each canvas’s scenario is related to the previous canvas

Take Step 3. the blankPush it back canvas from theto the front bottom of theof the clock clock Step 2. Draw on it
When multiple canvas are being painted at the same time, the stage of the previous days’ story will all be changed Mar 5 4 3 2 1In this case, everyone’s life story is uncertain, the story can be changed by any one at any time. Everyday you come here, the story will not be the same, because they are always changing and you will see how your move to another story to change other life
As time goes on,the thickness of this clock will be increased Like the Great Wallthis Wall of Time made by people will be longer and longer
