Transform your perception of now. ThePresent is the 365-Day timepiece for the psychologically curious. How can we live in the moment, if the moment changes every second?

ThePresent completes one revolution each year. As the hand makes its year-long journey, subtle shifts in color evoke the changing tones of the seasons. Starting with the the fresh white of winter, blues and greens begin to emerge to mark the coming of spring, and a vibrant yellow reflects the heat and sun of summer, easing into the deep hues of autumn. ThePresent is an invitation back to the present. Explore the nature of time with nature as your guide and transform your perception of now. 

A special note for our friends in the southern hemisphere: the clock is set to reflect northern hemisphere seasons.

About Scott Thrift

Scott Thrift is an award winning filmmaker, the co-founder of m ss ng p eces & the artist behind ThePresent. Thrift’s interest in the elasticity of time was born in non-linear editing rooms. He created ThePresent as a release valve for the pressures of modern time. A self proclaimed arm chair philosopher, Thrift landed on the question, “How can we live in the moment, if the moment changes every second?” The answer is ThePresent; a tool that provides access to a larger scale of time so that our idea of what a ‘moment’ is can expand to new dimensions.
