Tsuyoshi Tane of DGT Architects has created an art installation titled ‘Light is Time’ consisting of 80,000 analog watch main plates, the primary basic component of a watch. The small disks are suspended from the ceiling in such a way that people can walk through them, like a shimmering, golden forest.
“Time is light. If there were no light, then there would be no time. In the 20th century, mankind digitized time, measured it and continued to economize our time, until eventually we forgot about its relationship with the essence of light. Without light we never would have had the wonders of the universe, the richness of our planet or the joy and pleasure of our lives. “LIGHT is TIME” — the manifestation of light’s return to time — is our great challenge of the 21st-century.” Tsuyoshi Tane (DGT) (via Design Faves)
