Depression is a modern-day disease and mental illness that is widespread in overpopulated metropolises. An extensive number of people suffer from it in silence as there is shame or a fear of being judged or labeled. Timeless does not seek to cure depression, rather it hopes to raise awareness in a straightforward way.

 

The group of people in depression is being like trapped in a bottomless black hole. The clock named Timeless is symbolising the situation of people in depression. Instead of the traditional clock, applying the whirlpool concept on the hour and minute hand directly presents infinite situations and a lead ball in the center of the clock is to represent being trapped in depression.

 

More understanding of their hard time is the core message to deliver to the public.

抑鬱症是常見的都市病,有部份人更承受著情緒病的社會標籤。「無盡」這款時鐘,並不是用來治療抑鬱症,而是希望提高大眾對此病的關注。

 

處於抑鬱的人,就像陷入一個深不見底的黑洞,被憂鬱吞噬了時間,永無止境地徘徊在黑暗裏。而「無盡」這時鐘,就象徵抑鬱病者患病時的狀態。有別於傳統時鐘,指針(時針、分針)是用黑暗旋渦方式來呈現出無盡循環的狀態,鉛球(秒針)則代表著病患心身被困著卻無法走去的情況。

 

希望借設計此產品,讓大家能夠多一點體會及理解他們的狀況。
