Martin Smith is an artist who makes things that are usually kinetic. His work investigates craftsmanship and plays with the themes of humour, nonsense, and futility. The concept for Tweet Clock came from the notion of waking up to birdsong. He wanted a piece that could be set, as with an alarm clock, and would allow you to start the day gently. This mechanical clock requires no batteries. One wind up lasts 3 days. Alarm works via winding mechanism that causes the rubber accordion to make a pleasant chirping sound.
