I was inspired by the melting clocks in "Persistence of Memory". It is made of an old clock mechanism, leather, silk and puff paint. My mom helped me sew because I lack sewing machine skillz. The clock actually works as long as the face doesn't obstruct the hands. I put a snap button on the back so it can fold over and stay, such as when it hangs over a stick.

everyone should have one of those. It would also be super cool just to leave a few around town...

Very clever!  We've all seen clocks with an amorphous shape based on Dali's, but I'm pretty sure yours is the first actually flexible and portable one!  I'm also hitting "This Rocks!"
