Add Your Face to the Human Clock for TEDx Amsterdam

Crowdsourced Project Has a Serious Message

Published on

Editor's Pick

TEDx Amsterdam kicks off on Nov. 28, and to mark the opening of the conference, local Amsterdam agency We are Pi came up with a fun crowdsourced project. But in the spirt of TED conferences, it has a serious message.

The Human Clock is a montage of faces from around the world, with the ultimate goal of having 24 hours worth of one-second faces. It's an open-source experiment that builds as each new face is added online. The underlying message is to promote the thought that we're all united by time, Alex Bennet Grant, managing director of We are Pi, told Creativity: "We wanted to celebrate the diversity and reach of TEDx, to unite the world in time and demonstrate the power of an idea worth spreading."

So far, 2,500 faces have been added -- and yours could be one of them. To take part, just go to and follow the instructions.
