This June we had the chance to do a collaboration with Acne Studios for their s/s ’19 menswear collection. The images below show the qualities of the rocks and their new evolution into stacked pieces, a method that we tried with Acne and which has continued to output exciting results.
‘Time Over Time’, also known as ‘Time Rocks’ demonstrates how the changing properties of a material have the ability to signal alterations in our day. Architectural relics collected at the site of 12th Century church located in England’s Kentish countryside and rocks in the surrounding fields have been collected and cast. Using Dichroic Glass the pieces are embedded with metallic particles that trigger changes in the colour of the glass according to the frequency of light. In this respect, the glassworks become timepieces; similar to a sundial, they consistently change in colour from morning to noon to night in relation to the light in one’s environment. Each piece notes our instinctive ability to detect the subtle changes around us as a method of tracking the passage of time.
