what’s beautiful about kaleidoscopes is that they show us a different perspective, they are a metaphor in themselves, not just objects.
“What is lovely about this object, about this craft, is that it is not just an object in itself it is not just an object that you look at, it is an object you look through, to discover the world in various forms. I love kaleidoscopes since i was a child.” “Four years ago, what i thought about, what became my fundraising project, i put the name of kaleidoscope in my project. it’s minuni.ro - kaleidoscope of good deeds. because what i wanted to show through my project, was the beauty of the world, the good in it, the reasons to keep on believing.” “They (kaleidoscopes) as objects contain three elements that define everything that we love. And that’s beauty, complexity and simplicity.” “What defines us is what we have on the inside. sometimes, yes we might wear the same shirt at work, but we are very different people. when i realized that we are all kaleidoscopes i tried to go beyond with this metaphor and what is the prism inside of us. And i think one of the mirrors is imagination….the second is creativity… but the prism does not exist without the third…piece of mirror is what we do. what we make, our acts. which shape the world around us and the people around us.” “So we are a sum of moments, of eureka moments and ideas that shape our future for longer or a shorter period of time. The moment when I decided to craft kaleidoscopes, organize workshops and teach people how to craft them changed my life.”
