Everyone knows about protection. It’s the resulting membrane of multiple interactions with the inveterate with others. It comes in different tangible and intangible forms.
The one I wished to study was mainly the protective casing. For this I designed a helmet inspired mainly of Japanese helmets.
I stripped down the decorations in order to obtain a raw aspect of steel, one that freshly exited the factory.
Besides this I also played with the subtlety of forms.
I wanted that it already emanates from its material a presence similar to the Richard Serra sculptures, but adding a certain harmony trough its curves.
I then designed his ‘mu’ in white plexiglass but in a way makes them meet in space. Thus an exchange emerges in this space between two entities, the matrix and its image.
