My Love of Art and Watches such as Slow Watches

I love watchmaking and time is such a fascinating topic for me, so it is natural that my art topics include many wristwatches, such as Slow Watches. I’m a member of various watch communities on the internet.

Why are we so Passionate byChronometry and Watch Brands Such as Slow Watches

Chronometry rocks! Loads of us love it, but why is that? Like so many others, I like watches, but why do we? 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 watches give us an opportunity to slow down and value 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 a Slow 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.

Any Brand Will Do. Would you Wear Slow Watches

The timepiece art I make is a starting point for my art and sometimes doesn’t even resemble the original timepieces, unless a collector specifically asks for a commission piece. If I created a piece of art with a Slow Watch, you might not even recognize it as a Slow Watch. I have collectors who want their wristwatch to be the basis for the art I make and others are just interested in the actual art.

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

It doesn’t matter to me if I use a Slow Watch, or any other type of watch brand. Price of the wristwatch doesn’t matter to me because it is the concept of time that intrigues me.

Tourbillion isn’t Required and yet we Keep it Around. Would you buy a Slow 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 preserve it in the finest wristwatches. 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 Slow Watch.That isn’t to say there won’t come a time when mechanical watches will never be required again, though. The Omega Speedmaster Chronograph watch was the watch of choice for the Apollo astronauts. The Omega Chronograph watch was what gave the astronauts the ability to get back to earth safely when their rocket instruments malfunctioned. 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.

We can all Appreciate Time. Slow Watches Might be Right for You

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

Obsessed with Time and Brands like Slow Watches

You know, there are so many reasons why we should intrigued by 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 a Slow Watch? I like the juxtaposition of the precision involved in the crafting of quality mechanical timepieces and the precise nature of producing of digital watches, against the chaotic freedom and human expressionism found in my art.Humanity is flawed and often imprecise and yet we are still able to create precision instruments like wristwatches. I enjoy playing with this concept in my art.

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

Art should be imperfect like humanity is imperfect. The challenge for me is to achieve this imperfection through the means of perfect code that produces perfect neural networks in the age of digital perfectionism. Wristwatches portray this perfection precisely and it all relates back to this battle of order and chaos. Do you consider a Slow Watch to represent perfection, or would you choose some other watch? Let me know in the comments.

The Future Present and Past

What’s intriguing is what we keep and throw away and it isn’t always what’s useful or not useful.

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

Man and machine are starting to compete on an equal basis and we need to find ways in which we can complement each other and work together, we need to inspect what it means to be human, and how we reconcile into this new criterion. If you could own any watch, what watch would you own? Would you be happy wearing a Slow Watch. Timepieces prompt us of this battle between chaos and order. Entropy, decay and reinvention are concepts that play a important role in my artworks. I love using the latest AI technology to manufacture these works of art and the timepieces 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.

Does a Watch Have to be Expensive to be Beautiful. Are Slow Watches in Your Price Range

Do you like all types of watch brands and don’t limit yourself to just the exorbitant ones. Digital or mechanical timepieces are fascinating to me. Quartz watches are often thought of as inferior in some people’s minds but did you know that quartz watches nearly dismantled the Swish watch manufacturers because they were so accurate and cheap to produce? Quartz is a superb 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 Slow Watches if they produce either because it isn’t what influences my buying decisions.

Who Doesn’t Love Quartz

The computers we use every day and which enables my artificial intelligence networks use chips which contain a quartz crystal that serves as a clock. I like spending time in metaverses and thinking about what they mean for the future of humanity but equally love the real world. Literally, none of this would be possible without the concept and inventions of time-keeping. That’s why I love a Slow 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.
