The Teardown 2024 schedule is not yet finalized.
Check back here for time and location.

Linear Clock: Solar is a timepiece that invites the viewer to have a looser experience of time. It is a desk clock that displays a continuous glowing bar that shows the percentage of the day elapsed since sunrise, with a second indicator marking the time of sunset in blue. Compared to a traditional clock that allows us to obsess over hours and minutes, Linear Clock: Solar only permits the viewer to mark time and intervals approximately in relation to the natural cycle of the day.
