Dancheon Watch by Hannah Sung (meowyoface) for Projects Watches
Like water, sun, and wind, time flows. As it flows, so do the memories we keep. Memories, like a riverbed, are always changing, and so is the dynamic face of this timepiece.
Dancheong is one of the oldest styles of traditional architecture in Korea. It is a decorative pattern using the elements of nature in a simplistic and abstract form.
The green dot represents the hour and the orange dot indicates minutes.
The black abstract pieces never cease to flow; like nature and like memories.
Hannah Sung a.k.a. meowyoface meshed the traditional style of Korea with what she knows the best, being not so traditional. Many time pieces represent the meaning of living in the present. This piece was inspired by memories of the past; full of scars but also filled with love. We all heal with time.
What is Dancheong?
It represents the Korean traditional colors that decorate the wooden architecture in Joseon Dynasty (1392-1896) The Dancheong style is based on five colors; blue, white, red, black, and yellow. The method of using the five colors is related to the yin and yang principals, and the Philosophy of the five elements.
