DON’T LOOK AT ME LIKE THAT

Dimitar seeks a way to depict the sound images emerging in human mind after its interaction with certain sound or traditional Bulgarian folklore music, combining craftsmanship and innovative technology. The music represents the traditional manners and it can be used to chase away evil spirits or to bring happiness and joy.
This duality inspires him to materialise the sound that can be heard but cannot be felt by touch.

The new collection called NIGHTLIGHT SKIN, designed by Jonathan Hens, reflects with stunning ability the diversity and unity of our realities. The individual pieces of the series, consisting of distinct structures and leather materials, referto the structures that make human beings versatile. The notion that each individual is an individual in his or her own right, that differs from others through superficial and hypodermic characteristics, becomes apparent.
However, subtly Hens’ work forces us to look beyond. It makes us question the importance of dissimilarities and it compels us to focus on the unity rather than the diversity of individuals.
