A Watch that “Feels” Time

Time is invisible to the human eye. That very invisibility gives Time its infinite richness. Light, too, has neither shape nor form, But in its flickering transience we feel Time pass.

Can we mechanise Time and make it visible, while still retaining its essential invisibility? Can a watch give form to Light and make us “feel” Time through its shimmering glow?

In seeking to create a new way of “feeling” Time, somewhere between the visible and the invisible, I delved deep into the nature of Time and Light, creating this watch, with its hands that move amid half-transparent Light like subtle premonitions.
