Comfort in Repetition

Comfort in Repetition

Lever Faberge's brief; make a piece of work inspired by one of our products. A few weeks later, on Chirstmas Eve, a huge parcel arrived - Comfort Fabric Conditioner!

This piece, currently on display at Lever Faberge's Kingston offices, as part of it's BrandNewArt project, is a concertina book poem, undulating in it's glass and oak case. The words reflect the comfort of waves, washing....a repeating mantra.
