Aluna is a unique proposal for the world’s first tidal powered Moon Clock. It will change the way we consider time and understand our planet. Using the latest design and technologies, Alunatime will be powered directly by the tides using turbines. By looking at how each of Aluna’s three giant rings is illuminated, you can tell the phase and position of the Moon, and the height of the tides. This animation of light is called ‘Alunatime’ and flows slowly and continuously around the structure in a clockwise direction.The reliability of tidal energy combined with scientific precision timing makes Aluna a state of the art timepiece.

Aluna’s concept is universal and its form and principles can be situated anywhere on Earth. Alunatime is global - wherever you are watching the Moon, half the planet is able to watch it with you. This clock will build in London and Australia, to show the movement of the tidal. 

I think this clock will be the unity of science and art.
