"Je Maintiendrai" – french for "I will maintain".
Inspired by the Herbariy project, "I WILL MAINTAIN" takes the initial idea of interpreting official coats of arms of other states in a decidedly different direction – one that aims to test the boundaries of craft.

The whole process lasted 6 months, including design, multi-stage manufacturing of details, assembly, construction, photography and final edit.

The process was continuously recorded, resulting in over 16,000 shots compiled in the video that you can watch below.
