The only place you would expect to see a clock in a glass dome is on your great-aunt’s mantelpiece. But if you go to place des Jacobins, you will find its 19th century fountain has been transformed into a monumental mantel clock under a dome! It chimes every quarter of an hour in an outburst of light. The hours go by as fast as seconds in this whimsical installation.
*The Golden Hour is the name given by photographers to the fleeting moment shortly after sunrise or before sunset when the sun is on the horizon, casting the perfect light for a photo.
