I was interested in the topic of death and immortality. Referring to the impossibility of knowing death in phenomenological experience, it finds itself in a mystical field. The objects presented in the project combine organic and artificial materials, various polymers and plastics - oil refining products, which is a reference both to the “immortal” condition of the material and to billions of dead organisms millions of years ago, which became the basis for the formation of the oil. Through the cracks of consciousness the mystical seeps out, forming monsters, abstract fluid bodies that enter into interaction with each other. They move towards some kind of altar. This is a game with a world without us, where reason and consciousness do not guarantee superiority and survival. The world is like fear that the divine is unconscious.
