Leather, weave, speakers

Repeat, repeat, repeat.
Handcrafted work relies on repetition, on motifs, giving the viewer a sense of place. The artisan however is responsible for the perfection of each repetition.
For the one doing it, each repetition is unique. We were inspired by the artisans handcrafting objects for the new world by using techniques learned from their ancestors. We were fascinated by their machines that produce magic sounds in a very distinct rhythmicity. We pay a tribute to the work handcrafted with patience, care and affection. The weave and leather interconnect in a repetitive geometrical sound painting.
