Under worn out aesthetics and an aged surface, we are invited to observe the calligraphy and go deeper within.
From the mere tangled letters, stripped of meaning, to the message raising awareness of the difficulties we face as a society in our time, these canvases raise the curiosity as only a written text is able to.
This project takes its inspiration from the homonym book by Carl Safina, the text 'Sensing the World: An Anthropology of the Senses' by David Le Breton, and the film 'The Elephant Man' by David Lynch.
