It is from a desire for reciprocity that the Trilobe par Daniel Buren project was born: to combine a young watchmaking House with a world-renowned Artist. Around a scarlet beating heart, imagine a duality between the technicality of the watchmaker and the unique proposal of the Artist. It is, above all, the exhilarating prospect to realise a unique artwork to serve a great cause.
"La Réciproque" is a true sensory experience:
Forms, colours and meanings find their reciprocal,
Hours, minutes and seconds dance around each other,
Time passes and its form is released,
Black and white marry to the beating of a red heart,
Verticality is amused by circularity,
The frantic race of the "X-Centric" rings overlaps the verticality of the 8.7cm wide strips,
The gaze focuses and circulates to invite one to widen its field of vision,
Shapes finally come together twice a day, at the time when it all began, 2:13pm.
