Magic Sticks

2017 • Mixed media installation

(+ Text)

According to its definition, a magic stick is a thin light weight rod, or to put it more commonly any type of elongated shape object. According to this statement, I gathered a magic stick collection creating a more specific set of rules and a tool, to classify and organize them. I create a scenario that I display in a convincing demonstration using different medias and materials. This project makes us look at our immediate environment differently : is my pencil a magic wand? Magic Sticks reflects on the process of creating common beliefs and putting to test some established collective truths.
