CEREMONY BOX

Glass box for an important object.

Gradual uncovering of individual hatches. Creating an artificial effort to gain greater concentration. A black pedestal on which five hatches are placed. Under the last hatch, an important object can be placed. I perceive the ritual of the object as the opposite of the direct function. In order to grasp the object under the smallest hatch, it is a necessary to go through a series of actions, which include creating a surrounding space for the glass to be deposited, or extreme caution due to the fragility of the touching glass elements. This is a kind of imitation of the ritual long staircase at the end of which is an important building or statue.
