I Want To Go To There: “Light Is Time” Art Installation Features 80,000 Shiny Watch Parts

Watch Parts
Stunning

“Light Is Time,” an art installation that consists of 80,000 watch parts, made its debut at this year’s Milan Design Week in April and was on display (in a slightly scaled down form) at Tokyo’s SPIRAL Gallery last month. I’m crossing my fingers that it will be on view elsewhere soon (cough cough, New York City please?). Japanese watch company Citizen and French architects DGT put the project together “with the belief that technology is meaningless without beauty.” Thousands of watch plates, which serve as the base for the rest of a watch’s parts to be mounted on, suspend and shimmer from the ceiling as visitors walk amongst them.

A release from Citizen further explains the artists’ inspiration:

“From beyond the horizon, the rising sun slowly covers the earth in light, shadows transform into a different shapes, the seasons to transmit colour in nature and the waxing and waning of the Moon changes. When humans noticed these things, we unknowingly created the concept of time.”

Turns Out Sweaters Do Grow On Trees

Okay, not really. This is an art installation by Seattle artist Suzanne Tidwell, who stitches large scale pieces out of brightly colored yarn and then wraps them around trees, sculptures, and light posts. Still, we think it’s pretty magical. [Apartment Therapy]
