The final art installation design, Life Ticks By, gives community members an opportunity to re-evaluate how they utilize their time throughout their daily lives. The art piece enables them to take a moment of reflection so that they take a break from routine.

Ultimately, Life Ticks By allows people to manipulate their personal time, forcing them to realize that they need to stop and look around once in a while to gain control of their lives.
