“the universe is a box which contains the earth
which is a box which contains the house
which is a box which contains the humankind
which is a box which contains the soul
which is a box which contains the universe”
Inspired by a work that was part of an installation I presented during one of my exhibitions, this “thought leading thread” written on a monochrome background imposes itself as the focal point of the rug. “Universe” is minimalist in its design yet complex in its technique, as its tight and precise knotting makes it possible to obtain the small size and the sharpness of the characters on a dense weaving base.
