The three rings deal with the concept of re-reading. The objects made of different materials carry within them different coordinates in time and place, onemade of tagua nut from Ecuador, another of ancient wood preserved in a bog, received from a fellow artist from Romania and the third one of bamboo cutting board from IKEA. During our life, we may encounter multiple times the same literary texts, however with the changes of our life experiences they may evoke different feelings and thoughts from time to time. Our assumptions, principals, the questions we deal with may change and the accents on a story, the way we relate to them may shift with the multiple encounters of the same text.
