ryohei yoshiyuki: time of the sky II

‘time of the sky’

japanese designer ryohei yoshiyuki  previous designed ‘time of the sky‘ a watch that displays an image of the sky when you are checking the time. now, he has cooperated with media artist tomoya kahimada to create a new version of ‘time of the sky’. together they have designed and programmed the watch so that it displays different colors of the sky every few seconds, referring to the real sky. there is also that, when pushed, the sun or moon’s colors appear in the sky display from that time indicating hour clock direction.

the sky color is mean to remind you to look up at the real sky, from time to time, in this busy life of ours. ‘we are always looking at some kind of window, on the computer, mobile phone and so on. and now a small window on one’s arm…‘
