Art Motivation with Alba Watches

By Gwylym Owen

Why Art and Watches such as Alba Watches

I’m an artist who is captivated by horometry and consequently end up making art about wristwatches, such as Alba Watches. I know quite a few watch aficionados online.

Captivated by Time and Brands like Alba Watches

Time is a captivating subject. How long have you been interested in the concept of time? I’ve been obsessed with time since a very young age. What does time mean for you? I’ve owned watches since I was a young boy, have you ever owned watches? What do you think about an Alba Watch? I love the juxtaposition of the precision involved in the crafting of quality mechanical timepieces and the precise nature of making of digital watches, against the chaotic freedom and human expressionism found in my art.Art isn’t a science, but watch manufacturing is! Don’t you just love the conflict between these two things.

Time is Valuable. Do you Like My Art about Alba Watches

Whatever the brand, whether it is an Alba Watch, or any other type of brand. I’m jovial to form art with it. I’m not overly interested in the price of a particular brand that I choose to produce art with, it’s the concept of time that really interests me.

Anyone Can Afford to Appreciate Time. Alba Watches Might be Right for You

If you can afford a One Million Dollar watch that’s fantastic,  but you really don’t need to spend that to start appreciating the modern marvel of watchmaking. What price range would you consider when buying a watch? Would an Alba Watch fit the bill for you?

Quartz is a Modern Miracle

Quartz chips inside computers serve as a clock which powers my neural networks. I like to play around in metaverses and analyse future worlds, whilst remembering and cherishing our physical. None of what I do could be done without the invention of accurate time and the ability to record it. That’s why I love an Alba Watch as much as any other watch. Old meets the new and it is the imperfection of humans that pushes this perfection we see all around us. I could talk about all of this for days and bore the hind legs off a donkey, but I’ll just continue to create art and express it in a visual manner.

What Useless Things Will we Keep in the Future

Why do we choose to keep some things instead of assign them to the history books even if they aren’t useful anymore? It’s so curious.

All Watches Are Modern Marvels. Are Alba Watches in Your Price Range

Are you into all brands of watches, not just the really expensive ones? I am interested in both mechanical and digital watches. Quartz watches nearly destroyed the Swish watch industry because watches powered by quartz were more accurate than any of the mechanical movements that came before. Quartz makes it possible for my computers to function and those computers power my neural networks which allows me to create my art. I’d wear quartz or a mechanical watch from Alba Watches if they produce either because it isn’t what influences my buying decisions.

The Tourbillion Complication. Would you buy an Alba Watch.

A tourbillon complication is a historically interesting technical innovation but isn’t required in a watch and yet we keep producing wristwatches with tourbillon complications. Are wristwatches even necessary today? Not really and yet we keep on wearing them. I have friends who buy watches, have you or your friends ever bought an Alba Watch.That isn’t to say there won’t come a time when mechanical wristwatches will never be required again, though. The Omega Speedmaster Chronograph wristwatch was the watch of choice for the Apollo astronauts. It was the Omega Chronograph watch that helped them navigate back to earth when all other instruments failed. In the future, we may suffer from various problems such as no electricity, etc. A mechanical wristwatch would become enormously useful then.

What is the Fascination with Watches and Watch Brands Such as Alba Watches

Chronometry rocks! Loads of us love it, but why is that? Like so many others, I like chronometry, but why do we? We’re overloaded with information in this modern world. The timepieces allow us to respect time and slow down a little. Do you own any watches? Leave a comment below to let me know what watches you own, especially if you own an Alba Watch. Art is the ultimate pronouncement of humanity and serves to interrupt life’s rhythms and remind us about the other side of what humans are capable of and what humanity ultimately means.

We are Perfectly Imperfect. Do Alba Watches Represent Perfection for You?

Art should be imperfect like humanity is imperfect. Imagine trying to create imperfect art in a world where everything I use is perfect! From the code that creates the neural networks to the perfectionism in a digital world and the temptation to create perfection, that’s the real challenge. What portrays this evolution of perfectionism more aptly than wristwatches? Do you consider an Alba Watch to represent perfection, or would you choose some other watch? Let me know in the comments.

It Matters Not. Would you Wear Alba Watches

The wristwatches I choose to create my art with aren’t always significant as they barely ever look like the original wristwatches, unless I get a request for a commission. If I created a piece of art with an Alba Watch, you might not even recognize it as an Alba Watch. I have collectors who want their wristwatch to be the basis for the art I manufacture and others are just intrigued in the actual art.

Human Versus Machine. (Would you Own Alba Watches?)

Rivalry between man and machine is heating up and now is a great time to explore and embrace what it means to be human. If you could own any watch, what watch would you own? Would you be happy wearing an Alba Watch. Timepieces are a great reminder of the battles we face between order and chaos. Entropy, decay, death and rebirth are concepts that get me excited when creating art with groundbreaking technology like neural networks that are stimulated by these wonderful timepieces. Art is a visual language and using all these things together really speaks volumes about the messages I’m trying to convey.
