Intro
The 1gr project by Elkin Muñoz wants to show the difference between the price we give to objects and their intrinsic value. Thus incorporating tears, hair or even ashes confronts us with that dilemma, it makes us think about what is more valuable, what is made of the jewel or what contains inside of the jewel. His works also go beyond simple recycling and the use of sustainable materials, they are poetic of the lived, the experienced and felt.
