Like the plant or the tree whose roots are necessary for his survival, the human being is built from his roots and transforms, develops according to his encounters, his journey. RACINES evokes the construction of personal identity which is built from its roots and is accomplished through social interactions. This identity is constantly changing.
Like a wave, we are carried towards a future where anything is possible. The future belongs to us, we can shape its contours. This face imprinted in the waves, as if engraved in the root of an oak tree, with the eye wide open, vigilant, ready to capture all opportunities, represents our future shaped by our past.
