The Timeless Pieces project plys a big part of Boago Modise's life. What inspired him to come up with this project was to portray how important time is. Read on and enjoy!

As I started with this project I had no intentions of sharing it with an one but I remembered that my art teacher once mentioned that we had to submit a coursework project for our Cambridge International Examination, so from then I knew which audience were going to receive my artwork.

No matter how much we try we can not change what happened in the past but what we can do if live off what happened in the past and try to build off that. As for instance at the age of 7, I was involved in a bad accident, since then I live each day as if it's my last, making the most the 24 hours I have cause I have no idea what the world has in store for me the next day.

The way I made this project was to look for components that represent time and that measure it differently, so I decided to use the sun dial, stopwatch,hourglass and a normal wrist watch. Then I thought to myself, what if I make the wrist watch and the sun dial one component, so I took the gnomon and made it the center of attraction in the wrist watch.

Since this worked only during the day I created a small digital time telling socket to tell time at night. The stopwatch and hourglass you can say are compliments to the wrist watch but they also have a significant meaning to them as the stopwatch can measure up to as little as splits seconds, portraying that it only takes a split second for someones life to go from good to bad vise verse. Same goes to the hourglass. Everything in this project was created using Blender 3D.
