3 x r I T U A L S

installation & films
commissioned by Comme Des Garçons Berlin
+ collaboration with film maker Frerk Lintz

Burning, extracting oil, crystallising. These three rituals of transforming materials are staged and filmed in a studio environment for the installation. The films are shown in a temporary architecture.

The design team collaborated with CDG perfume makers. Their scents mixed and clashed with our material fragments.

The viewer was invited to experience unstable landscapes of salt, wax, steel, copper, maritime pine wood & oils with all senses.

Frerk Lintz filmed the transformations at the studio with poetic precision. Moving image and materials processes inspire each other and are interwoven in the final installation.
