more socialist public art! a lot of places had installations that were made by the local state industry and showcased their connection to the city. #weimar had a clock factory - so they got a clock, obviously. it's a really nice mechanism, it displays world time with a spinning cylinder, and has displays for temperature, barometric pressure, and humidity. the city removed the badge with the dedication after the reunification (socialism!? that never happened!), it was only put back last year.
oddly enough, the neighboring city of #sömmerda also has a clock, this one was a present from the computer factory. it's design is very 80s. also, it has a computer, so it plays a 8-bit jingle every full hour. and the dedication was never removed, a lot of people there are still proud of the days when there still was an industry and the city was relevant.
