A countermould is the reproduction of the form of a buried and destroyed organism, obtained by filling the space it used to occupy with different material.
The project works from the different layers of a single character, or of a single character, if we speak of "only" as an adjective. Apathy becomes personality and impatience is at a low point, comforted with habits that remain from homesick times.
"Contramolde" calls for solitude, forgetfulness, the monotony of sad (all) days and how they lead us to silence, under a state of mind indifferent to longevity. It's about living with it or letting yourself be destroyed.
After all I am alive only by accident.
