For years I have been working on the project of woven hanging nests for people. My installation has been arranged with five such objects, suspended in the air, placed amidst trees. You can go inside to read, relax, have fun. I wanted to create a vessel for calming down and contact with nature, for both children and adults. I call individual objects bathyscaphes. I placed poems composed in different cultures inside them: like periscopes or research tools, they are helpful in submerging beneath the surface of reality.
