3 KEY WORDS that INSPIRE his CREATION




#BIRTH
Emerged from a liquid matrix, the 怪 [gwaii] catches its first breath at birth. Feeding himself with oxygen, it carefully grows developing its own nature/personalities.


 
#BODY TRANSFORMATION
Expanding through life stages, the 怪 finds its uniqueness through a series of transformation. Gravity gives its beauty and its curves. Experiences, scars and wounds mark its skin. Cherished flaws and teenage memories slowly shape it creating strange transplants.

 

#DEATH
When it comes to maturity, the 怪 is momified following ancient Egyptian rituals, wrapped for ever in layers of coloured concrete. At the end of the process, the 怪 is ready to find its eternal life somewhere in the outer world.





[gwaii]

 strange, odd, unusual
