– When you think of love, what is the first object that comes to mind?
– The dishwasher.
This is how the idea was born, with a (strange) conversation with my 92 years old grandmother, to investigate the infinite – and sometimes really surprising – facets of love in our daily lives.
What is LOVE?
Love is a colour, a place, a road, a journey.
A state of mind, body and soul. A choice.
Love is silence. And it is noise.
Love is present. Even with absence.
Love is strong. And yet so fragile.
Love is near. Even with distance.
Love, simply, that often feels inexplicable, the most unpredictable of forces.
Love, it’s what makes the world go round.
Love is all around.
Love is everywhere.
Define LOVE using one COLOR and one OBJECT this is the question, or rather the starting point of a simple and wonderful journey. As love always should be.
And so, #letmetalkaboutlove this way…
