‘Oscillate’ is a conceptual version of the traditional clock. Visually, it takes the form of a compass where each line represents a quarter of a standard clock face. Three coloured vectors pulse in quick succession to reveal the time; the first vector (in red) represents the current hour of the day, the second vector (in green) represents minutes past the hour, and the third vector (in blue) represents the seconds. Each vector progresses outwardly from the centre until a quarter of its cycle is complete, then moves on in a clockwise direction to complete the next.
The Oscillate screensaver was available for a limited time from July–August 2009.
