B4_#045 // The Tomb // Stanislas Turcon
The tomb traditionally manifests itself as an object which embodies loved ones’ spirit through faith. This typology is here reinvented as a thermal pool: a space for remembering through an experience of the senses. Bringing together the memories of the past and the warmth of the water, to celebrate both life and death in harmony. This proposal explores the duty of memory’s spiritual dimension through a hedonistic approach.
“God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. How shall we comfort ourselves, the murderers of all murderers? What was holiest and mightiest of all that the world has yet owned has bled to death under our knives: who will wipe this blood off us?” — Nietzsche, The science of joy, 1882
