This sculpture piece relates to the special nature of the location by combining dials for hours, minutes and seconds with that for global time zones to form a “time tower” that shows the time from different parts of the world. This illustrates that, as a cosmopolis, Hong Kong is a converging point for talents from around the world who work in concert to leave a dazzling trajectory in time.
