The Aurora Electric clock has a series of internal gelatin "color cells" which constantly rotate and counter rotate, producing a moderately hypnotic, continually changing, multi-chromatic rotating clockface. The Aurora was based on Jordan Kirsch (of Kirsch-Hamilton)'s patent for a clock that used birefractive lenses. They hired the design firm Corchia and de Harak in the early 1970s to design the iconic clock, which soon found its way into the permanent collection of the MoMA.
