Sandra Bullock Zero Gravity Clock

infinitely variable digital clock featuring Sanda Bullock figure
  (+4)

A Sandra Bullock figure drifts around inside the confines of a depiction of an endless space, that is the clock face. The figure moves randomly. Every fifteen minutes an action occurs that enables the time to be marked as the continuous story of drifting through space evolves.

Sometimes her arms and legs slowly line up in such a way as to mark out the time as fifteen minute time slots. The figure's body twists and turns in a manner that causes the other arm and leg to be hidden, or blurred out of focus. Periodically there are close ups of control panels within reach. The times may be obscure, but somewhere within the clock face frame, the time will be told, as the figure continues to tumble and drift between space debris, distant space stations, the turning earth and glimpses of a blinding sun.

       I think you don't grasp the gravity of the situation.

       If the characters in the movie hadn't survived, would the newspapers have printed an orbituary … ?

       I knew someone would float something like this sooner or later, and it was bound to cause a chain reaction

       Those who bugger as they hum are humbuggers.
