After developing roughly 60% of the infinity mirror clock, these are the constraints I have run into that I need to overcome in order to achieve the desired aesthetic and initial impression.
- Rewiring the lights to run on a battery pack rather than 120V household electricity
- Also maximizing the battery life so that I am not buying new batteries after every use
- Hiding the wiring and electrical system behind the clock
- Space is very limited behind the 12″ clock body
- Building the mirror on clock face that has to allow electrical systems to pass through including clock hands
- Clock face must have two holes for the hands and to feed the LED wiring to the back of the clock
- Illuminating the clock hands without creating the infinity mirror effect (when the LED lights are off and the desired effect is just a clock)
- Right now you can barely see the clock through the mylar flim on the clock face. The intention was for this piece to transform from a clock into an infinity mirror, however it currently looks like just a mirror with some indistinguishable thing on the other side.
- LED strip heats up after about 2 minutes of being on, I’m not sure if this will be a problem but I need to determine if this could potentially damage the clock if they are left on for an hour plus at a time.
