In the 1990s, a friend visited an isolated tribe in east Africa for investigation. The chief gave him a precious and beautiful accessory made of wolf teeth and animal bones. A decade later, he visited again, this time receiving a handiwork created from a Coca-Cola can, valuable for its rare emergence in this place.

People in different environments have different values, and such diversity can be confounding.

Illusion captures these cultural ‘misunderstandings’ and coincidences and arranges them as a series of fantastic, black-humorous works.
