the artistic conception of the Chinese brush drawing by chengyuan ren from china

designer's own words:

In the design of the clock, the thought of innovation centered around the artistic conception of the Chinese brush drawing. It expresses the yearning for and the meditation on the infinite nature through the vividly element full of the thoughts of Zen. Then we should feel the vitality and intimacy of nature with our heart, and let our mind and soul be closer to nature. For the perspective principles of concave and convex mirrors, the background pattern on the dial becomes “live”. For example, in the first project, under the mirrors, the pattern on the dial appears as the moving ripples, and the fishes used as the hands of the clock, more vivid, and look like playing in the water.
