In order to design a display that looks like the QlockTwo but tells stories about energy instead of time, I had to figure out a way to do this transformation efficiently. I first came up with three types of sentences in which names, times and quantities can change according to the energy measurements. I then assigned colours to corresponding phrases and ordered them. Sometimes a ’s pace’ was necessary to split the words but not always. This was filled into a matrix from left to right, top to bottom. Empty spaces were hereafter filled with random letters. In total, more than 150 combinations are possible!
