The German architect and artist Tian Harlan conceived the idea of colour time in 1970. Colour time is relaxing, fun, and natural. Putting colour into time gives more time. It takes the rush and stress out of time through removing obsessions with the precision of minutes.
Tian designed a colour watch, the Chromachron, that people could wear to tell, see, and live in colour time. The Chromachron is a watch for people, not machines.
Stitched Chromachron takes the idea of colour time one step further. The potential of colour time to relax time is developed through taking time to stitch each colour hour using a different embroidery stitch. Stitching colour time adds texture and varied intensity to telling, seeing, and living colour time.
