A varnished electrified vase with lighting flowers in metacrylate and led lights.
The inspiration? A rural context marked by farming seasons, its horizon of natural gestures relegating automation to necessity and favoring an ideal of spontaneous well-being, and not one that is necessarely cultivated inside a gym or found in the paradigm of comfort at all costs. Simple atavic gestures – seeding, stricking, or simply picking a flower – that unexpectedly sublimate in WildCrafts, enriched with a surprising functionality: lighting. A third landscape of unfinished objects that find their fulfillment with completion, interpretation or just usage.
Jabbed and stuck in the soil of a vase, the WildCrafts’ axe or the stick, light up in a surprising magical performance confidently acquiring as its own an apparently violent gesture questioning both typology and usage. All this gives life not only to the very object but also to an ironic universe of poetry where the moment of use crystallizes assuming the value of a new code that communicates the feelings and needs of domestic life.
The WildCrafts experiment is made possibile thanks to the innovative application of the information and communication technologies to furnishing, and to the finishing of metal transforming plane surfaces in three dimensional objects.
