7 Rainbow Minutes by Paul Flannery

Paul Flannery tells us more about this beautiful minimalist new piece;
"7 rainbow minutes is part of an occasional series of clocks. Each clock uses a computer file type to keep its time. Often this is a gif with each frame ticking over at one second intervals. In this piece though, each minute is witness to one colour of the rainbow mixing in to the next.

Underpinning the series is an interest in how a computer file, in this case an mp4 might be considered a unit of time. CPU and connection speeds will likely vary according to user and location which combine to make it somewhat unreliable as a measure." - Paul Flannery. See more;
