Concentrating on the concept of ‘in-between’, the aim of project  is to create space for transformation to transpire, by reflecting on existing conditions and forms.Within a transitional realm, the project offers a multidisciplinary approach and focuses on how space, object, sound & movement collaborate in order to create conditions for the formation of new realities.
An object in a constant conversion process shifts between defined and undefined forms, generating visible traces that point to a process of transformation. Nothing new occurs until the necessary endings take place. Endings that serve the purposes of a new beginning.
