Aakash Nihalani 

Artist Aakash Nihalani uses brightly colored tape to create isometric rectangles and squares in locations around New York, and has recently started a series where he interacts with these geometric shapes to great effect. Via his web site:

For however briefly, I am trying to offer people a chance to step into a different New York than they are used to seeing, and in turn, momentarily escape from routine schedules and lives. We all need the opportunity to see the city more playfully, as a world dominated by the interplay of very basic color and shape. I try to create a new space within the existing space of our everyday world for people to enter freely, and unexpectedly ‘disconnect’ from their reality.

Venn Diagram Clock 

About Time is a clock by RISD grad and Fulbright scholar Louie Rigano that abstracts the precise function of hour, minute and second hands to translucent, amorphous color wheels. The accuracy and function of such a clock is somewhat debatable and I would probably consider this more of an art piece than a means of making it to an interview on time. Unfortunately this is just a prototype but according to Rigano he plans to eventually put it into production. Yes, please. (via fastco)
