Custodians are a phenomenon manifested in many eras and cultures all over the world. Custodian objects, objects of care are able to establish connections between worlds, life and death, harvest, nature and other aspects of life and living together.
The custodians I created continue this “tradition”, the human need to care. The intended archaic shaping communicates with the symbolism of the early human existence. A function of the symbolized care of the custodian is self-defined by the spectator.
Why exactly 10,0000 custodians for our world?
The idea of 10,000 people that consciously chose the object – their object – of care therefore form a big network and link with each another. Every single place where a custodian finds its place will be documented and thus becomes part of a whole. Until now the network holds 14 countries on 5 continents. In our world map you can explore the different locations.
