...London’s First Public Moon and Tide Clock...
'‘ALUNATIME’ is a graphical notation of time in light designed by artist Laura Williams. It shows the lunar phase (wax & wane, the lunar day (rise & set) and tide cycles (ebb & flow). Governed by the relative position of the Earth, Moon and Sun, these fundamental rhythms have shaped our past and will continue to determine our future. The Moon creates our tides and 70% of the Earth’s surface is water; with the rising tides of climate change, understanding these natural rhythms of our blue planet is now more important than ever.
Launched on the Full Moon of October 22nd 2010, this first ever, live ‘real time’ version of ALUNATIME provides vital ongoing research and development for the 38m diameter tidal powered clock known as ALUNA, planned for the Greenwich Peninsula'
