The life of forms
A philosophy of reenchantment


“To collect means to surrender to the desire to love more than one object with the same intensity and care without ever choosing exclusive love.”

Life in its forms is an intense and lengthy reflection on how we define ourselves based on the objects we choose.

This interests us because it reflects on the relationship between us and “things”, whether they be works of art or everyday objects.
