The work proposes a fascination to explore the formative gesture as a space for abstract cultivation. The manipulation allows for an organic permutation where forms are shaped into spontaneous fragments, while they call one to question the paradox of a limitless possibility, pointing to the promise of things that are yet to be imagined. Uncertain in their own becoming, they celebrate the innate curiosity of oneself in the imaginative play of wonder and delight.
