In collaboration with a like-minded team of creatives we portray ‘The lost daughter of Icarus’ as an ode to ones that work with limitless dedication, the ones that are passioned to discover and re-define a new world, the ones that enable us to enjoy great design and works of art – the artists. While we often get to see the beauty of their finished works, the beauty of their hidden worlds of creation often remains unseen…

    In Greek mythology, the master craftsman Daedalus is on the run for the armies of king Minos. Daedalus creates two pairs of wings, for himself and Icarus, out of wax and feathers. The sudden power of f light, however, causes Icarus to try and push his luck. In his arrogance, Icarus starts f lying too close to the sun, which causes the wax on his wings to melt and ultimately sents him plummeting towards his doom in the tumultuous seas below. Back on the
    mainland, we find that Icarus has daughter. She hides and locks herself in the cathedral Daedalus, where she develops an immense fear towards the sun. The fear to be devoured by the sun, just like her dad, keeps her in the safety of the cathedral. The years pass by and slowly her hair and skin get more and more pale. When king Minos searches for the lost daughter of Icarus, he finds a bewildered young woman. A pale white apparition that true lack
    of interaction with the outside world, which she had only seen in books and pictures, had no other choice but to create her own world full of art.
