Colours. A new time perspective.
As humans we seem to have forgotten how to read time without looking at a watch. Today we are taught to look at hands on a dial to indicate a point in time. But what if we could challenge that paradigm? What if being inspired by the position of the sun or feeling the daylight’s brightness was more effective?
Our thinking started a few years ago when Ressence was approached by Professor Christopher Harvey of the department of neuroscience at Harvard. At that time, Prof. Harvey was studying the way our brain makes sense of information displayed on a watch dial and how it understands time. He was studying the process that transforms a graphical representation of time into an orientation in the dimension of time.
One of his findings was that the way watches with hands represent time might not be the most efficient way to indicate multidimensional information in the glimpse of an eye. According to Prof. Harvey the unique and patented Ressence dial (ROCS) corresponds to a more natural way of representing information. Ressence was onto something.
