Brainbelt Illustration Collective | Design Week Exhibition 2014 | Title: "The Chime in the Slime"
I wanted to do a fun piece about a design disaster in Dublin for Design Week. This piece is about the ill-fated 'Millennium Clock' that was commissioned by the National Lottery in the 90's to countdown to the year 2000. The clock was submerged in 1996 in the River Liffey, in a high profile position visible from O'Connell Bridge. A postcard booth was placed on the bridge that printed postcards for 20p, bearing the exact amount of time left until the dawn of the new millennium. Unfortunately the clock had repeated problems with letting in water, and failed to display the time correctly. It was removed after a brief period, but not before it had been nicknamed "The Chime in the Slime" by some, and others as 'The Clock in the Dock' in typical Dublin fashion.
