Is there a single way to conceive our reality?
Between spirit and matter, metaphysics and the physical, I am creating these transitional objects. From our world of reality to the world of fantasy and imagination, far away from the Western perception.
The smoking kit is set inside an amorphous pouch, carried close to the bosom and held by a harness.
The process of revealing the complex kit’s core is an allegory for revealing my own self.
The mask (a falcon) expresses a connection between man and beast, and the goal is to redirect the user’s gaze onto his own eternity, without the chance of looking to the outside world.
