# Project 06 – Abstract Clock

I remember learning about the Korean water clock that was invented in the Chosun dynasty in elementary school, which inspired me to create a simplified version of it through p5.js.

function setup() {
createCanvas(420, 400);

text('The water clock', width/2, 50);

let hr = hour();
let mn = minute();
let sc = second();

fill(255);
text(hr + ':' + mn + ':' + sc, 10, 150);
text('24:00:00', width-65, 150);
rect(100, 140, 30, 5);
rect(200, 140, 30, 10);

push();
fill(255);
translate(350, 380);
rotate(radians(180)); //rotation to make the rectangle grow upwards
