FERROWATCH Watch Concept
FERROWATCH Watch Concept by Zaouai Karim ENSCI Les Ateliers is a metaphor pertaining to time passing – flowing in an irrational manner. It utilises ferrofluid, a liquid containing magnetic particles inside a carrier fluid. Ferrofluid acts like the typical fluid until it enters the particular proximity of a magnetic field, at which usually point that takes on a suspended express. No hands or digital displays tend to be visible on the watch face. If you aren’t looking at your watch face, the ferrofluid will be circulating freely inside the watch casing. As soon while you tilt your wrist, the liquid freezes within space thanks for the influence from the magnets inside the casing. The actual pattern created by the internal magnets echoes the image of traditional watch things. It creates any contrast between a great immaterial, imprecise notion of time and also high-precision mechanics.

This project produced out of experimentations related on the notion of fluidity within objects. From these kind of experiments with forms and also graphics, a catalogue involving fluid forms was created. Nevertheless, these flows are generally, by their very nature, intangible. Your idea was to generate an object in which enhances the notion involving fluidity – symbolically and in the great range of forms the idea generates.
