Makin' Time Computer Art Clocks

These High-Tech Computer Art Clocks are individually handcrafted timepieces. Many of these one-of-a-kind clocks incorporate a hard drive platter, a CD or a DVD as the clock face and an embellished circuit board as the background. Other models are crafted from pocket or mini-CDs, floppy disks, drive housings, video laser disks or main frame drive platters. Each clock offers a whimsical view of our rapidly changing technological world, preserving it as art rather than sending it to a landfill. In addition to their functionality, they help contribute to the overall recycling effort by utilizing obsolete, discarded or surplus computer components.

Carol Baum has been creating computer art clocks for many years. The first one was a going away gift for a retiring chief engineer at a video production studio. At the urging of friends, she started Makin’ Time Computer Art Clocks in Boulder, Colorado. Baum is self taught, dabbling in mixed media art since childhood. Her outside-the-box creativity and personal values help care for the environment by reducing, reusing and recycling made Makin’ Time a perfect venture.
