ThePresent annual clock

Designer and filmmaker Scott Thrift created ThePresent analogue annual clock as a response to the contemporary experience of time.

Here is a clock where the hand moves in annual time, completing one revolution every 365 days, challenging our hurried notion of time in today’s age, forcing us to sit back a moment and contemplate the slow progression of a year.

To Thrift, living in the moment is impossible when we view the passage of time in increments rather than in vast expanses. It is only when we reflect on past experiences days, weeks, even months after they have occurred that we truly appreciate the moments we’ve seized. Telling a story that lasts a whole year, his clock offers a moving solution to the challenge of slowing down and concentrating on the present.

Jock

Jock

Front and back cover of Jock New York magazine, November 1969.

A rare gem in American, and particularly New York sports history, Jock New York magazine has been all but forgotten. It lasted only 8 issues from 1969 to 1970, but despite it’s troubles, Jock was truly the first “sports lifestyle” magazine that featured beautiful photography and writing from the best sports journalists of the time.

From the Editor Mickey Herskowitz in 1969:

“Jock New York is the new adult sports magazine. Polo? Jock doesn’t know polo. Jock is about the passionate sports – the 3 balls, and hockey, and the fights, and the races. Jock is for the fan in us all – the living ex-child who roots and sweats and kicks the TV, who has known hate for an umpire and love for a tight end, and who on January 12, 1969, was not ashamed to weep for joy.”
