l always ask myself WHY (almost) all clocks are photographed showing 10 minutes before 14:00 ?? Until now nobody could give me a certain answer.
l only know l like this image also for two main reasons: first is that both lines are up, which denotes optimism...and second, the longer line may suggest a start point of moving forward...just like a shifter...somehow similar with the old train wheels. (this perception is possible just by the usual knowledge of the Counter Clock movement we have)
Whatever...l don't feel convinced by any of the explanations.
The same WHY question l ask myslef about the form of the chinese spoon. l asked many chinese weiters in restaurants about this, but nobody was able to give a certain explanation. They offered me one as a gift, so much desire of an answer they saw on me... :) Designwise this form must have some reasons why it is formed like this.
But still...WHY ?
