|About the Project|
|Remember the pocket watch? With the advent of cell phones, wrist watches
are dying a slow death. But it is difficult (if not impossible) to throw out your
old wrist watch even if it is broken. Is that because when it was worn it was almost an integral part of the body? Does it represent an important moment in one’s life?
Our goal is to create a 1000 watch commemorative collection of old, discarded wrist watches. Each watch will receive an epitaph written by the owner and can be visited in our online gallery.
When complete, the collection will be donated to the Smithsonian Gallery in Washington DC as an illustrative display of this moment in time.
|How to Contribute|
|To contribute please send your wrist watch to
Moskow Linn Architects
88 Broad Street
Boston, MA 02110
Be sure to include a 10 word epitaph and your email address (optional). We will transcribe the epitaph onto a tag, catalog the watch and post your contribution. When complete, we will notify you via email so you can visit your watch online. Please note, donated watches do not need to function.
On behalf of Moskow Linn Architects, thank you.
