This was a project tracing important historical moments hidden in otherwise common materials and symbols. Starting from searching for possible connotations of a household object, it was a process to contextualize seemingly random signs for a micro narrative that adapted broader socio-political discourse into the relevance for individuals. Both visual and textual analysis was crucial in identifying adequate symbols and materials in the most appropriate presentation for creative interpretation, however not losing its ground of facts and informative elements. With its precise fabrication, all the movements and effects (including sound) were carefully calibrated for a contemplative experience, which is equally important.
