Description

This work is inspired by the equally warm and psychotic character Willy Wonka from the memorable 1970s film “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory”.

Today, Willy Wonka is particularly recognized as a cynical viral meme, an image that has been repurposed time and time again. An homage to this perfect imbalance of the character is realized in the materialization of the object, a sort of twisted candle holder. The result of what could be a failed spell underscores the domestic object’s potential of transforming into a fictional persona participating in a larger narrative about a mundane domestic microcosm, blending into the wicked fantasy of stage prop design.
