Blush Clock is a paper object made to live while bearing traces of time.

2kg of fiber pulp was poured into this object with substantial volume, where the materiality became the vessel to contain the passage of time. Paper, historically despite its thinness, is an object often carrying expressions by others, yet itself embeds a message of a well-crafted material.

Blush Clock is a solid block of fiber made without adhesives or resins. It adopts a propriety fiber suspension and compression process to naturally achieve a rigid and stable unibody. This hybrid process emerged from traditional papermaking craft and architectural rammed earth technique. The Clock attempts to resist paper’s natural deterioration to the atmosphere by excessively massing its fibers to prolong longevity. Its pinkish blush, made from natural insect dye commonly used in cosmetics, enlivens the clock with a sense of humanness. It embodies the contrast between the fragileness of the material and the crudeness of the process.
