This new collection is indirectly inspired by the Zohar, a Jewish middle ages mystical theory from The Kabbalah, which in Hebrew means “Splendor and Radiance”. The inspiration took me to a non-religious path in observing life and its meaning, and questioning if there even is one. There is beauty in the acceptance of the sequel of one’s life. The story that is being told through pain and joy, with the fragile and flitting existence of moments and memories (like the love your baby-turned child-turned adult, akin to a floating balloon that you try to hold tight, so it would not slip out of your hands and disappear into the sky forever.The balloon is an important symbol in my work- the innocence, the fragility, the fun and the loss – the essence of life itself in one cheap but wonderful mass produced plastic waste which can bring a room to life, or a child’s day into a celebration and later on, into a tragedy in its ending.
This collection is about observing your story, all while knowing that the main character would eventually die in the end of it, yet, is it a tragedy or a celebration?
