Time Will Tell is a body of work that is based on the time and history of watches. It explores the essence of watches from Coventry’s Watchmaking industry, in which there has been a shift on how we value these objects. Watches are more than just objects.
They are links to our past, our histories and our ancestry. Time leaves an indelible mark that is not always visible but can make the worthless seem invaluable. In this body of work, the aim was to explore the emotional bond, as well as the sentimentality and emotional power that these objects contain.
This was done by focusing on the marks left on the watches bodies over the years; each individual mark has it own life behind it, and tells its own story.
