Who is Janis?

A simple front view of our project, Janis

Our art installation, Janis, is an interactive, nontraditional clock. Using a series of rotating paddles, Janis conveys the time accurately and attractively, while asking for a bit of deciphering on the side of the user. If someone approaches Janis, she stops conveying the time and instead plays a game of mimicry with the person in proximity. This play causes the user to lose track of time in more ways than one.
