Head to Green Label Art for a brief interview with JK5 about the watch.
Artist Joseph Aloi — also known as JK5 —teamed with Timex on a limited release watch for Barney’s Co-Op. Working within the confines of a small, octagonal face JK5 fluidly adorned the timepiece with symmetrical linework and vibrant color choices. Though fairly cryptic, the glyph-like etchings read “JK5″ and “Barneys,” horizontally across the top. Turned sideways the watch face reads, “Illuminate,” and the numbers one to nine. On the bottom it says, “Love, Light, Create.” The functional labeling (i.e. “start”) is slightly clearer in a contrasting color. Available this Holiday, exclusively at Barney’s Co-Op.
