ABYSS



In the digital world, our new way of living is and will be more and more "living as a journey", through screens. We don’t have an idea of a home anymore. The idea of a home has changed.
Today, our home can be seen as our own body. How can we feel comfortable and conscious existing physically in our
body- home, through TOUCH and in INTERACTION with the space from which we travel into the virtual world. Even if our body is our home, we still need an object in contact with us to simulate, remember, feel and be conscious of our own reality. Abyss is a small personal environment, playing with texture, tension, density, flexibility, and physical symbiosis with the body, an object to be shaped by using it, like a nest.
