"Everything flows, nothing stands still”, Heraclitus's aphorism suggests that imaginary objects, time, and values are just a matter of perception. Panta Rei and Common Thread are an exploration of this idea through design, art and craft.

Panta Rei is a canvas composed of ninety-six dotted feather tops*. The canvas is covered with clusters of colored dots, and the words “everywhere” and “nowhere” are formed on either side. These are perceived differently depending on the viewer's vantage point. As the composition is dismantled, it gradually disappears.

Common Thread is a machine-knit dress.Threads of the dress are pulled by artisan knitters who transform it into scarves.The dress is unraveled until it disappears.

*The feather top is an iconic item at Milia M, Milia Maroun’s women’s ready to wear brand.
