My Love of Art and Watches such as Oris Watches

As an artist who appreciates watches I find myself making a lot of art that includes watches from Oris Watches as the subject. I’m a member of various wristwatch communities on the internet.

The Past and the Present

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 interesting.

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

My art aims at being imperfect, just like humans are imperfect. I’m using perfect code that produces perfect neural networks in the age of digital perfectionism and the undertaking for me is to create imperfection. Watches really are perfection and so I find it a useful subject to express – through visual language – the friction between order and chaos that rages on. Do you consider an Oris Watch to represent perfection, or would you choose some other watch? Let me know in the comments.

Who Doesn’t Love Quartz

My neural networks use computers that use quartz crystals that serve as a clock. I love to play around in metaverses and analyse future worlds, whilst remembering and appreciating our actual. None of this would be conceivable without time and our ability to record it. That’s why I love an Oris Watch as much as any other watch. The old and the new constantly battle and still it is the imperfection of humanity that allows us to create all of the perfection we are surrounded by. I could endlessly expand on my excitement and curiosity of time, and if anyone would be stupid enough to ask me to do so, I could probably bore them for a very long time on the subject.

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

A tourbillon complication is a historically interesting technical innovation but isn’t required in a wristwatch and yet we keep producing wristwatches with tourbillon complications. Are timepieces 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 Oris Watch.You never know what the future has in store and there may come a time when we once again rely on watches. 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. Maybe in the future we have some kind of natural disaster that makes our current technology useless and we come to rely on the simple mechanical watch again.

Interested in Time and Brands like Oris Watches

There are many reasons to be obsessed with time and find it a fascinating subject. Are you interested 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 Oris Watch? The manufacturing processes involved in watchmaking are so precise and are entirely at odds with what I try to create in my art. Humanity is flawed and often imprecise and yet we are still able to create precision instruments like wristwatches. I love playing with this concept in my art.

I’ll Make Art With Any Brand. Would you Wear Oris Watches

The wristwatches I choose to make my art with aren’t always significant as they barely ever resemble the original wristwatches, unless I get a request for a commission. If I created a piece of art with an Oris Watch, you might not even recognize it as an Oris Watch. Some collectors are very adamant on what watches they want; and others just love the art whilst not caring what the subject originally was.

Making Art is Thrilling. Do you Like My Art about Oris Watches

Whatever the brand, whether it is an Oris Watch, or any other type of brand. I’m elated to create art with it. The price of a watch doesn’t factor in what I choose to make art with because it is the concept of time that interests me.

Head to Head or a Peaceful Coexistence with Machine. (Would you Own Oris Watches?)

Competition between man and machine is heating up and now is a good time to explore and seize what it means to be human. If you could own any watch, what watch would you own? Would you be happy wearing an Oris Watch. Watches prompt us of this battle between chaos and order. 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.

We can all Appreciate Time. Oris 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 Oris Watch fit the bill for you?

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

There are loads of us that are into watchmaking, but why? 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 respect 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 Oris Watch. Art is the ultimate expression 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.

Does the Price of a Watch Matter. Are Oris Watches in Your Price Range

Do you like all types of watch brands and don’t limit yourself to just the excessively priced ones. Digital or mechanical wristwatches are fascinating to me. Quartz was a modern-day miracle for watchmaking and nearly destroyed the Swish watch companies because they were so precise. Quartz is a glorious thing and is inside every computer. I use those computers to power the neural networks that help me produce art–how could I not love quartz? I’d wear quartz or a mechanical watch from Oris Watches if they produce either because it isn’t what influences my buying decisions.
