Ant Farm Clock as Wall Clock or Mantel Clock – Your Favorite

At 1-800-4CLOCKS, we are always seeking customer input to be innovative and to meet customer needs and desires. This is true whether it be for grandfather clocks, wall clocks, mantel clocks, atomic clocks, or whatever timepiece.

We recently received such a fascinating suggestion, and one we thought worthy of sharing and are interested in any and all reactions! he new product could be an Ant Farm in a Wall Clock or in Mantel Clock, or even a grandfather clock. Does an Ant Farm enclosed in shatterproof glass as a mantel clocks or wall clocks offering sound possibly appealing to you. We looked and we have not seen any out there on the market today.

Alternatively, we’ve thought that perhaps there should be only a children’s version on an Ant Farm Wall Clock or Mantel or Desk Clock. Maybe a kids version would appeal to what would seem to be a more traditional audience.

On the other hand, when one looks at the amazingly successful work of British artist like Damien Hirst, whose work, among many others, like a shark in a tank in formaldehyde have made him a media icon and his name almost a household word, and many other quite interesting and unusual art forms which have both been exhibited in museums and sold for millions of dollars at the major Auction Houses, maybe an Ant Farm as Art in a Clock is a time has come.

Below is one work of Damien Hirst which was seen by the writer of this blog post on exhibit at Lever House in New York City, and subsequently believe sold for literally millions of dollars, along with similar works (this may be a similarly themed work rather than the actual one seen):

Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living, by Damien Hirst

So what to you think of an Ant Farm in a clock? We’ve thought of a new series of clocks entitled Art Form in a clock. While this may sound either like a self-contradictory idea, as many clocks are indeed amazing art forms and most certainly museum-quality.

We are thinking of what might be viewed by most as “Contemporary Art” Clocks. These could be grandfather clocks, wall clocks, mantel clocks or we are open to anything.

Let us know your thoughts.

Damien Hirst – are you possibly interested in teaming up with us? We would love to work with you, and will see if we can call you. Give us a call at 1-800-4CLOCKS. Your work is most certainly cool and cutting edge Art!

    Wacky idea but fascinating! I recall fondly as a child having an ant farm which was given to me as a Christmas gift. I used to spend hours with that ant farm and I was sure I could recognize some of the individual ants!

    An ant farm in a clock? I love it.
