The survival of our planet and ourselves depends on the realization that we are part of the environment. We need to re-conceptualize our relationship and maximize our connective participation. This is not a merely theoretical idea; it has to come through direct and immediate experiences.
Cleaning as a practice is the first step towards this understanding. Praising purity, it affects our body and mind in equal measure. Through cleaning, we express our respect and appreciation towards ourselves, others and our direct surrounding. We learn to reconnect with our physical environment and internalize it by actively engaging with it. Cleaning changes our awareness and perception. It promotes independence, helpfulness, and consideration. Moreover, we learn to correlate our actions with their cause and effect. Necessary to maintain a healthy equilibrium, cleaning is part of our life as a recurrent cycle.
With this project we aim to praise cleaning as religious atheism, practiced through daily rituals of cleaning one's body, direct surrounding, and the environment. Kirei is a set of cleaning utensils designed to promote this cleaning activities while metaphorically expressing their value. The collection consist of three parts: “Litter-Rings” to collect rubbish a “Dust- Bracelet” to care for once direct surrounding and “Pollution-Necklace” for cleaning face and body.
