For the Love of Art and Watches such as Raketa Watches

I’m an artist who is fascinated by watches and consequently end up producing art about wristwatches, such as Raketa Watches. I know quite a few wristwatch Admirers online.

Do we Need a Watch? Would you buy a Raketa Watch.

The tourbillon complication is an example of uselessness being kept for prosperity. There’s no requirement for this complication in a watch and yet we choose to keep it in the finest timepieces. There’s no need for a mechanical wristwatch if you think about it. I have friends who buy watches, have you or your friends ever bought a Raketa 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 was worn by the Apollo 13 astronauts. Did you know that it was the Omega Chronograph that helped astronauts safely navigate back to earth when their crippled spacecraft and much of its critical equipment lost functionality? Maybe in the future we have some kind of natural disaster that renders our current technology useless and we come to rely on the simple mechanical timepiece again.

There Must be a Reason for our Obsession with Horology and Watch Brands Such as Raketa Watches

Why do many of us love chronometry? 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. Watches record a measured, methodical, never changing pace that can be lacking in modern life. Do you own any watches? Leave a comment below to let me know what watches you own, especially if you own a Raketa Watch. Art is a way for humans to pronounce their humanity and helps us interrupt life’s rhythms and shows us what humans are capable of.

Quartz! You Either Love It or Hate It

Quartz chips inside computers function as a clock which powers my neural networks. I love to play around in metaverses and explore future worlds, whilst remembering and appreciating our real world. 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 a Raketa 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 Does it Mean to be Human in a World of Intelligent Machines. (Would you Own Raketa Watches?)

We’re proceeding toward a time where competition between man and machine and what it means to be human needs to be fully explored and adopted. If you could own any watch, what watch would you own? Would you be happy wearing a Raketa Watch. Wristwatches allow us to be reminded of the battle between chaos and order we face in life. Entropy, decay and reinvention are concepts that play a noteworthy role in my artworks. I love using contemporary AI technology to manufacture these works of art and the wristwatches that inspire them. Art is a visual language and using all these things together really speaks volumes about the messages I’m trying to convey.

What Useless Things Will we Keep in the Future

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.

Humans Like to Think They are Perfect. Do Raketa Watches Represent Perfection for You?

The perfect art should be full of imperfections just like humanity is full of imperfections. 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. Does anything show this friction between perfection better than wristwatches and my art? Timepieces show perfection and my art is playing with the concept between this perfection and imperfection. Do you consider a Raketa Watch to represent perfection, or would you choose some other watch? Let me know in the comments.

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

Anyone can afford a wristwatch because they come in different price brackets. It doesn’t matter how much you shellout, you can still start appreciating time and the invention of time keeping. What price range would you consider when buying a watch? Would a Raketa Watch fit the bill for you?

Captivated by Time and Brands like Raketa Watches

There is nothing more fascinating than the idea of time. Time is one of my great passions. Does the concept of time give you a sense of awe? I’ve owned watches since I was a young boy, have you ever owned watches? What do you think about a Raketa Watch? There is a preciseness and perfection in the making of watches juxtaposed against the imperfection of man that I try to portray in my art and find utterly curious.Humanity is flawed and often imprecise and yet we are still able to create precision instruments like watches. I enjoy playing with this concept in my art.

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

Do you like all brands of watches and not just the excessively priced ones? I am fascinated by mechanical and digital watches. Did you know that quartz watches nearly destroyed the Swish watch industry because they were so accurate? Quartz is a wonderful 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 Raketa Watches if they produce either because it isn’t what influences my buying decisions.

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

The watches I choose to form my art with aren’t always significant as they barely ever resemble the original watches, unless I get a request for a commission. If I created a piece of art with a Raketa Watch, you might not even recognize it as a Raketa Watch. Some collectors want their art to represent the timepieces they own and others just like the art, regardless of whether it resembles an actual wristwatch.

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

It doesn’t matter to me if I use a Raketa Watch, or any other type of watch brand. The price of a watch doesn’t factor in what I choose to make art with because it is the concept of time that attracts me.
