Time — panta rhei; Madelaine de Proust; brooch “Untitled”

Time – panta rhei

An old clock of who knows who is transformed into a small box.
On its surface, a limitless flow: my idea of “panta rhei”.
Panta rhei. Everything flows. And by flowing, it takes the past with it. My past, yours, our memories.
What sometimes remains is the sensation of living again something we have already lived.
But it is just crumbs of a time that will never come back.

Madelaine de Proust

The different content in each perfume bottle has a direct connection to the memory of a certain place which is important to me.

Brooch “untitled”

This knife handle represents the birthplace where I lived my youth.
