World Clock - a migration theme site in Tysvær

World Clock in Tysvær

The idea of a world clock as a metaphor of global migration was initially born at the Norwegian Emigration Center. Just recently this idea has been further developed by the renowned Norwegian multi-media company Media Farm. The above illustration of the Word Clock is made by Media Farm and Colon advertising agency, and presents a variety of inter-active activities related to both local and global migration history - past and present. The World Clock will involve, provoke, and stimulate both body and soul. Young and old; groups and individuals.

If the ideas materialise, the World Clock will open in September 2008, replacing the present exhibition Promise of America in Tysværtunet culture house in Aksdal, Tysvær. The plans have been presented to and applauded by the culture administration.

A power-point presentation of the World Clock can be uploaded here
