States of Matter

Melt yourself away
I dissolved into a dream.
It cured me and it cursed me.
I thought this day would never last, but now it is my life.
This unique vinyl art sculpture comes in the impressive height of 15'' [38 cm] and will be available in two editions. Trance [limited to 345 pieces] finds noop in summer tones above water and subaquatic teals underneath, enjoying a popsicle on a placid day. Cosmos [limited to 234 pieces] is drenched in nightmarish blacks and blues as noop meets nism for the very first time. Both editions capture a different moment in the story of noop finding stillness in a world where change is never-ending.
States of Matter seems to balance impossibly, as if noop is actually floating in his swim ring. A translucent blue water line with smooth ripples separates the world of solids from the world of liquids so that we can witness the same matter enter and depart his body in different states. noop’s effortless sense of grace has a soothing effect even as the clam’s menacing tongue tastes his foot and the squid’s tentacles wrap tighter around him.
Both editions of States of Matter come with noop, his swim ring, the translucent blue water disc casting a magic shadow, and a carnivorous clam lurking beneath. Trance comes with a swim-capped noop, one popsicle and matching gradient bubbles. Cosmos comes with one tentacled nism and an inky liquid cloud. Both editions are securely packed inside a color-printed gift box and embedded in black sponge.
Watch your fears evaporate, and take a deep breath in.
