Every product is created to fulfil a purpose. There is a moment between creation and use where every product is similar to the rest. The only moment that every object's essence and existence is denied is when it's given as a gift. Every present hides a latent energy of creativity which is waiting to be revealed. I wanted to freeze this moment and thereby deny the very nature of the things. Therefore, since 2008 every Christmas I have given myself the gift of a design product which I will never open. These presents are not present.
