Statement

Inspired by Gemma Arterton and Salvador Dali, Drip is an attempt to make a very rigid form into something more organic. Something more surreal. Drip plays with Dali’s theory of ‘softness’ and ‘hardness’, which was an unconscious symbol of the relativity of space and time. It’s a rejection of time as a solid and deterministic influence. ‘My favourite things in life don’t cost any money. It’s really clear that the most precious resource we all have is time’ (Steve Jobs).
