Individual perception of time

Every human being has an individual perception of time. Depending on the situation, location and state of mind each of us has a different perception. Sometimes we feel the time passing faster and sometimes it slows down. In a dream it may run faster than in an exam or a waiting room. My goal is to design a watch, which can visualize the individual perception of time. I have compared big watches such as the one of Big Ben with small wrist watches. The pointer of the Big Ben's clock hand runs much faster because its orbit is much larger. This way I came up with the idea to create a watch whose clock hands are variable in length and can be adjusted by the user. The result is an extraordinary, playful accessory that does not change the rules of time telling but represents time itself in a completely new way.
