Materials / Beech wood. Brass hinges and screws. More than 2000 wooden parts that each can be individually flipped, painted in blue/grey/white colours on one side. Concept / While natural disasters are perceived as terrible occurrences, natural forces can also be viewed as awe-inspiring and magnificent. Dear disaster cabinet is aiming to facilitate a process of recovery after natural disasters for the user to reconcile and regain trust in nature. The moveable structure is meant to give an outlet through which the user can express his emotions and on which he can leave his own individual imprint. This was inspired by the idea that creating images and graphs might aid a psychological recovery. The structure symbolizes a process of regaining trust in nature with the help of abstract patterns and rhythmic interaction, similar to using a rosary to aid in prayer. The patterns are inspired by water and waves – calm or agitated like a stormy sea, static and moveable at the same time. Dimensions / [h-w-d] 150 x 50 x 32 cm
