I have always been intrigued by the unknown, the unexplained. It’s about trying to understand something different or someone different and with each exploration you understand yourself a little better. This project is about people that chose to be different or live alternatively. I found inspiration for this project from my favourite quote by Jim Morrison:
No eternal reward will forgive us now for wasting the dawn
It is about seezing the day and living life to the fullest in ones own way. The sun will rise each morning and if I you waste the opportunity to make something out of your life, you will not be rewarded in any way. Living your life the way you want, is your reward.
I have used the four elements in alchemy as an inspiration for my design elements; Earth, Air, Fire, and Water. In ancient times these elements were considered the building bricks of the Universe: “everything that has substance has earth in it; everything that has energy in it has fire; everything that flows or has feelings has water; and every thing that involves sound, thinking, or communication has air in it”. The more we study nature, and compare it with ourselves, the more we can learn to know and understand each other, and the uniqueness of our own individuality.
