Things with Souls remind us of the relationship we human beings have with nature, and they celebrate the personal relationships we have with each other.
It all started with the desire to tell my children with a simple experience, where things come from, what they are used for, and how to appreciate them. The idea is to let objects tell the story of their origins through a reverse metamorphosis. In doing so, I realised that used things have an extraordinary value. They are filled with personal memories. I want to sublimate those things that may have lost their function, but have kept sentimental value. They become keepsakes to remember special people, moments and relationships, or they become unique gifts to present and transmit precious memories to someone dear.
