Time Is On My Side / Diary

Time Is On My Side
Time Is On My Side

Time Is On My Side is a unique diary which has a hidden watch movement imbedded in the hardcover. The watch works as a displayer to indicate exact time of a day, 24 hours, and a user can see the time through a 30mm hole neatly punched in the inner signature (96 pages). A diary has a very unique concept of recording events on timeline. The main focus of this project was to reconstruct the idea and the form of a diary and transform it, by integrating the concept of real time to the object. By doing this, it enabled the object to present a precious experience of leaving a trace of time when it is being used, through the activity of writing.
