Huge wooden digital clock runs manually using people power

Every train station has a clock, but only in Rotterdam will you find a huge digital clock being operated by a 70-person team. Named Standard Time and created as an art installation by Mark Formanek, every minute the team will manually change the planks that form the display, a total of 1,611 changes in the 24-hour period of the event. What this is meant to symbolize isn't exactly clear, but you've got to admit, it's a good conversation starter.
