As we travelled through different lands, fetishes sometimes appeared. They bear witness to willpower, the agents of forces which the West cannot harness. The photographer suggested to designers that they should create their own fetishes. Thanks to our official healer, they searched for their self-healing and positive action. Stating one’s will, finding the right intention that can bring about advancement, change and evolution. By manufacturing the object, the intention can be achieved. The creation of the fetish thus becomes a catharsis for it's creator.
