« Awakening Awareness – To magnify a problem, to create dialogues and awake awareness about what lays behind some of the objects that surround us. 3D diagrams that communicate about the material waste of our nowadays goods.
Jewellery, tableware, furniture and silk clothes are present in our daily life, contrary to the unseen raw material we need in order to produce them. »
