The Corpus Clock

1 save

Wishlisted by Matt Mayer

While most things in Cambridge are at least a few centuries old, this curious clock was only unveiled in 2018 at Corpus Christi college. It features a strange insectoid called the Chronophage (“time eater”) which eats the seconds as they pass. A pendulum judders and lights flicker erratically to show the irregularity of life.
