The Corpus Clock Chronophage


video



This is video of the Corpus Clock striking 11a.m. It is a mechanical clock outside Corpus Christi college that contains the largest clock mechanism of the "grasshopper" type, with the grasshopper-esque "chronophage" at the top of it being a clever play on the name and a way of demonstrating that type of clock movement. It's only accurate every five minutes at it sometimes pauses. Unfortunately, it's a bit hard to photograph as it's behind glass.
