How would it feel to be part of a wall? What if I turned into a window? Or maybe I could be a bathtub?
Starting from a natural movement, the contact between foot and floor sparkles a process that numbs the senses as we know them as humans. Or, rather, it transposes them through a hypothetical journey of multiple selves under one denominator: the shape refers to necessary elements of everyday life, achievements of human intellect and action, products with use value and a meaning further to the conscious contact. This spiral transfiguration of the same material, hides the return and the request for clarity. Or, maybe many people are simultaneously looking to fit in and match.
