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 the oxygen around to carefully grow.


 
#TRANSFORMATION
It develops through a series of transformations which, like life’s experiences, slowly shape the unique nature of the 怪. Wounds mark its skin, difficulties its flaws. Tenderness gives its beauty and gravity its curves. Each transplant is the memory of a moment of transformation, like the different stages of life.

 

#DEATH
When it comes to maturity, the 怪 is mummified following ancient Egyptian rituals, wrapped for ever in layers of colored 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
