ELIXIR

Size : 14 inches dia x 7 inches height

Medium : Glass blowing, Light



A drop of elixir refracts and fragments light into their elementary nature, allowing one to construct new spatial narrative’s through phenomenological embodiments of elemental ingredients to give birth to an undivided space.

We embarked on an exploration of the Elixir phenomenon and, during the process, witnessed the mesmerizing refraction of light within intricate fluid structures created by the interplay of water and light waves.

This led us to delve into nebulas, researching the formation of matter and planetary systems through chemical imbalances and gravitational pulls. Our design encapsulates this aesthetic structure in a three-dimensional space, with light at the center representing the interstellar disk that fuses matter. The installation allows us to position ourselves in relation to this metaphysical reality, and acknowledging the shared existence within the endless Elixir (silver sea)—a space embodied by all in equal parts.
