Computer Clocks

Computer Clocks are individually handcrafted high tech timepieces by Carol Baum. Most one-of-a-kind clocks incorporate a hard drive platter or a CD as the clock face and an embellished circuit board as the background. Other models are crafted from CDs, floppy disks, drive housings, video laser disks or main frame drive platters. Each clock offers a whimsical view of our rapidly changing technology, preserving it as art rather than landfill. In addition to their functionality they help contribute to the overall recycling effort by utilizing obsolete, discarded or surplus computer components.

Carol Baum

CarolCarol Baum has been creating computer art clocks since 1995; the first one was a going away gift for a retiring chief engineer at a video production studio in the Maryland/DC area. The rave reviews and additional commissions prompted a friend, Cynthia Goldner and Baum the originator, to further test the market and me. Subsequently, MAKIN' TIME Computer Art Clocks was born. Malinda Fishman joined the Boulder Team in 2011: she and Baum met in 1996 at Fishman’s Boulder craft gallery, The Middle Fish, and have been friends and colleagues ever since. Baum is self taught, dabbling in mixed media art since childhood. Her outside-the-box creativity and personal values to help care for the environment by reducing, reusing and recycling made MAKIN’ TIME a perfect venture. MAKIN’ TIME Computer Clocks are individually handcrafted high tech timepieces. Most one-of-a-kind clocks incorporate a hard drive platter or a CD or DVD as the clock face and an embellished circuit board as the background. Other models are crafted from pocket or mini CDs, floppy disks, drive housings, video laser disks or main frame drive platters. Each clock offers a whimsical view of our rapidly changing technology, preserving it as art rather than landfill. In addition to their functionality they help contribute to the overall recycling effort by utilizing obsolete, discarded or surplus computer components.Carol Baum Clocks
