Time in Balance

Briac Laforge – Time in Balance

Having spent a year in Switzerland and being interested in the world of watchmaking, I naturally turned to this universe for my graduation project. 

I liked the idea of using the codes of Swiss watchmaking to adapt them to my work. 
For my graduation project, I sought to create an object using the precision, details and materials of various Swiss manufactures. 

The final object is a mobile clock with two balanced hands. The appearance of the object is simple and ethereal, due to the small number of visible parts. Nevertheless, the mobile hides a complex mechanism inside. The goal was to intrigue the user by creating a magical effect with these two balanced hands. Depending on the light, it is possible to read the time thanks to the shadow cast by the object on the ground.
