It is quite impressive to look at the detailed photos of Lee’s paper cut and make you wonder how she can create that intricate scenes on the easily broken paper. Bovey Lee’s work is rooted in her traditional Chinese painting and calligraphy training combined with modern computer technology and her own innovations. As Lee says “When I cut paper, it is a visceral reaction and natural response to my affection for precision, detail, and subtlety.”
In these days, wall clock is more like a decoration than a device which tells time. Many of us even don’t own a clock at all. Take a look at the interesting clock “Time Is Dancing” designed by German designer Meike Harde. Generally, it is a simple, round clock with a single ballerina on the front. The upper body and two legs are separate pieces that move and bend depending on the hour. As time ticks by, the minimalist design displays minutes and hours through the elegant movements of the dancer – jump, pirouettes or splits. Quite impressive right? I would love to have one at home.
