PlaceTime is a 24-hour clock made from Google Maps. The clock contains 29 numerals drawn using the directions feature. 4 maps are positioned next to each other, with a band in the middle dividing hours and minutes. A visual ticking effect is created by shifting the map inside the band laterally. Desktop browsers feature the ambient sound of a passenger jet, evoking the idea of flying high and watching the distant earth below.
