Entry Description

Men and women are attracted to each other and try to become one. This fundamental desire carries an energy that affects all matter in the world. I wonder what is the reason we have to make such an effort to become one. Possibly we were originally one. Since I believe this, I intend to visualize this power of love by adhering and unifying couples. When I was trying to look for a way to express the power of love, I thought of a star which, when it dies, shrinks and creates a black hole that sucks its surroundings into itself. From here I started to vacuum-pack lovers together with their possessions. This is their chaotic microcosm.
