For this piece, I drew a bottle opener partially gripped by the object it’s entering. The twisting becomes tighter and tighter, as observed by the squeezed lines in the thinnest section of the drawing as migrating from one place to another is not an easy task, traveling gets complicated. At the top of the bottle opener are grooves for someone’s fingers to settle into and push downwards to help getting into the final destination.

The bottom object is inviting yet warning, giving the illusion that it will grasp anything that gets within reach and it may accept or not the new comers. In the negative space of these objects, two swan heads can be perceived as going downwards into the depths.
