Sýn. investigates the self opposed to the sin of being one's authentic "I" in society: the blossoming of what usually hides inside. This transformative movement affects firstly the artist in the act of creating: a time consuming, meditative process of repeatedly forging and linking together tiny elements, to generate a whole. Through senses and perceptions the wearer experiences surprising contrasts between form and substance, imperceptible but "visible" sounds, unconscious associations. Evoking animals, plants and imaginary hybrid-shapes, the objects can be defined as "friends" for us to carry: a source of strength and pride when necessary, in other cases shields or armor for protection. Small companions that everyone can choose to adopt to be less alone in the process. Presented to the outside world as alternative to conformity, a form of Active Resistance. “Sýn” derives from a Greek prefix for words indicating union, complexity and simultaneity.
