During this lecture I tell one oral story about the relationship between the human and the clock. It starts from the first mechanical inventions, it develops into the struggle of being together at see. I talk about its role for industri- alisation, its growing importance in history and how it reaches the stars and accelerate society. How maybe this relashionship is coming to an end with a separation…

Humanity used clocks to structure time for society, triggering many techno- logical and sociological developments. Their relationship has been changing since the beginning, they grew and got old together. What is becoming of time then?
