As children, we relate to the world around us differently. Who hasn’t filled up a sink imagining to be an endless sea and play with little figures in this whimsical and unique world? We all did !
The medicine cabinet, a forbidden place with names we didn’t understand but filled up with colorful boxes that would become buildings of a city that sleeps while we are awake and awakes while we are asleep.
Every space in hour homes has its own role, magic was in every daily object that surround us. From the water bottles at the table that were control towers of an imaginary airport, to spoons that could catapult object far beyond the edge of the table, everything has endless possibilities through the eyes and perception of a child. Even candy through it color and textures not only made us smile, but also sometime even it becomes superhero’s food that would transform us in a strong caped character that would save the world or the kryptonite that would make us weak.
Thorough my work I tap into these forgotten emotions associated with the past that live in us, but sometimes forgotten. I’m not trying to create nostalgia in the viewer, but rather awake the ability still inhabit in us to bring that inner child out for a play. A new fresh experience trough the eye of our inner child that is in all of us and needs to go out and play more often, because sometimes he has forgotten how beautiful and fun life could be.
