For the Love of Art and Watches such as Orient Watches

My love for horology often shows up in my artworks. The internet groups for watch aficionados have always been a great place to hang around and get stimulated.

The Uselessness of the Past

I’m intrigued about the usefulness and uselessness of past and present, what we choose to keep; and what we assign to the history books.

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

Art should be imperfect as it is an expression of humanity and humans are imperfect. Perfect code produces the perfect neural networks that I use to co-create my art with artificial intelligence and the real challenge for me is to create imperfect art. Wristwatches exemplify this perfection precisely and it all relates back to this battle of order and chaos. Do you consider an Orient Watch to represent perfection, or would you choose some other watch? Let me know in the comments.

Who Doesn’t Love Quartz

Neural networks that I use to create my art use computers and those computers have quartz crystals that act as a clock. I’m bewitched by metaverses and what they can potentially mean for the future of humanity but also treasure the real world. Think about it, none of what I do would be possible without the concept of time and the ability to record it accurately. That’s why I love an Orient 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 wax-lyrical for days about time and art and how this fits into our humanity.

Do we Need a Watch? Would you buy an Orient Watch.

A tourbillon complication is such a fascinating movement but there is absolutely no need to have that in a wristwatch, and yet, we keep it anyway, so interesting! Do we even require a wristwatch these days? Probably not, but we still love them and keep them around. I have friends who buy watches, have you or your friends ever bought an Orient Watch.There may come a time when timepieces are one of the only things we can rely on. Omega Speedmaster Chronographs were worn by the Apollo Space astronauts. If the Apollo astronauts never had the Omega Chronograph watch they wouldn’t have been able to find their way back to earth when highly technical navigation equipment failed. Who knows whether we’ll have electricity outages, or some other natural disasters that render the technology – that we currently rely on – useless in the future.

Intrigued by Time and Brands like Orient Watches

There is nothing more captivating than the idea of time. Are you intrigued in the concept of time? I know I am. I’ve owned watches since I was a young boy, have you ever owned watches? What do you think about an Orient Watch? I enjoy the juxtaposition of the precision involved in the crafting of quality mechanical watches and the precise nature of manufacturing of digital watches, against the chaotic freedom and human expressionism found in my art.Art isn’t a science, but watch production is! Don’t you just love the conflict between these two things.

It Matters Not. Would you Wear Orient Watches

The art I produce about watches sometimes don’t even resemble the original watches, unless I get a specific request from a collector. If I created a piece of art with an Orient Watch, you might not even recognize it as an Orient Watch. Some collectors want their art to represent the wristwatches they own and others just enjoy the art, regardless of whether it resembles an actual watch.

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

Not everyone wants to spend a million bills on a wristwatch, but everyone can afford a wristwatch. They all tell the time and that is something special. What price range would you consider when buying a watch? Would an Orient Watch fit the bill for you?

Will Machines Steal Your Lunch. (Would you Own Orient Watches?)

We’re drawing nearer to a time where rivalry between man and machine and what it means to be human needs to be fully inspected and embraced. If you could own any watch, what watch would you own? Would you be happy wearing an Orient Watch. Wristwatches allow us to be reminded of the battle between chaos and order we face in life. Entropy, decay, death and rebirth are concepts that get me enthused when creating art with the latest technology like neural networks that are inspired 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.

What is the Deal with Us Watch Enthusiasts? and Watch Brands Such as Orient Watches

Why do so many of us have this excitement for watches? I think the answer lies in the fact that we live in a world of instant information, fast food, instant 24-hour rolling news, social media posts that get lost in the abundance of information available and fashion fads that last for a week, etc. These wristwatches give us an opportunity to slow down and appreciate the tick and tock of life’s rhythms. Do you own any watches? Leave a comment below to let me know what watches you own, especially if you own an Orient Watch. Art is an expressive means of describing humanity and what we’re capable of. It allows us to break the chains of time and shows us what we’re capable of achieving when we do so.

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

I am just as contented making art with the subject being an Orient Watch or any other brand. The price of a wristwatch doesn’t factor in what I choose to produce art with because it is the concept of time that engages me.

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

A watch brand doesn’t have to be exorbitant to appreciate it. Digital or mechanical timepieces are fascinating to me. Quartz watches nearly finished the Swish watch industry because watches powered by quartz were more precise than any of the mechanical movements that came before. Quartz is in the computers which powers my artificial intelligence networks that I use to make art with. I’d wear quartz or a mechanical watch from Orient Watches if they produce either because it isn’t what influences my buying decisions.
