Panerai Time Writing Story

The ‘Time-Time Design, Design Time’ exhibition organized by Panerai in cooperation with Triennale Design Museum and Beijing Central Academy of Fine Arts is underway. This exhibition, which will last until April 10, will pass the plastic arts , Photos, videos, and other works, let visitors explore the relationship between time and design.

 What time is it? Does it move forward or reincarnation? What can record time? Is time subjective or objective? You may find the answers to all kinds of questions about time here. At least, it will make you think, or it will be a smile after knowing it.
 For the watch brand that has the most direct relationship with ‘time’, the discussion about the meaning of time has never stopped, but the precise watch worn on the wrist cannot seem to fully explain this philosophical proposition. Panerai’s global CEO, Mr. Angelo Bonati, hopes that this exhibition will allow ‘visitors to travel through time and space to explore the wonderful world of time and space, at least spiritually.’
 How does time pass? Some artists expressed it more ‘decisively’, symbolizing the year of the year with a dated scroll, and the passing day disappeared completely in the paper shredder. Tell people in this way that the past has passed and is no longer of value.
 Time does not always appear rigorous or even sad. The work of artist tefan Strumbel looks a bit ‘heavy.’ Cuckoo clocks, wooden masks, skulls, crosses, all these items representing time are layered together and exaggerated. In some people’s eyes, time does have the ability to devour everything.
Installation art based on Panerai watch design
 In the color game of Portuguese artist Fernando Brizio, the color is constantly shifting from the marker to the ceramic bowl. In this slow, asymmetric and random way, any object will be unique as a result. Indeed, time will pass Traces are left on everything, but this gift-like gift is unpredictable. We should thank this gift, which makes each of us unique.
 As we continue to explore what eternity is, the work of artists Alicia Eggert and Mike Fleming may give the answer: 30 clocks and 36 black hour and minute hands turning, 12 hours or seconds on a white acrylic plastic plate The words ‘eternal’ are formed on it. But the text effect only lasts for a few seconds, after which the process starts again. The message read from this conceptual device is that eternity is fleeting, and there must be eternity between fleeting.
 Timing tools are often reminiscent of sight and sound. Time passes between clock hands, and people can perceive everything with their eyes; sometimes the ticking of a timer, or the sound of a clock, also reminds that time is flying. Sovrappensiero design studio ‘Scented Time’, through its fragrant and rich flavor, makes people perceive time with the sense of smell. Each of the seven scented candles emits a different scent, which will ignite the next one when burned out in 20 minutes. Perceive time with your sense of smell and decide when it starts. The concept of ‘time’ becomes quiet and romantic.
 The story that Panerai writes with time also needs you to taste it carefully.
