Limetime is a clock that emulates the behavior of cells at a microscopic level, where elements instead of dividing themselves by mitosis, join together every time unit (minute, hour) to create more complex organisms. In the project there are three different kinds of “cells”, each to represent a time unit, respectively seconds, minutes and hours. The corpuscles can feel the distance between each other and move away with a different speed if the near body is the same kind (friend) or a bigger one.

Lifetime was made by Matteo Loglio during a Processing workshop held by Andreas Gysin at the Master of Advanced Studies in Interaction Design at SUPSI, Switzerland.
