Objects within the installation reference rituals and spiritual practices in order to reveal the potential of the magical worldview. The work refers to the perceptual and transformational potential contained in the materials themselves by presenting a dialogue of artificial and natural forms and objects. Applying this way of thinking to everyday practices could serve as a possible strategy for adaptation and survival. This is an exercise of broad-mindedness, an attempt to visualize goals and future perspectives, both on an individual and collective level. The facilitation of new life-affirming modes of coexistence and the creation of support structures is essential in this rapidly changing era of global crises.
