ROUTES OF FATE is a story of two worlds intertwined to make sense and existence to each other. It is the story of the genesis of the underground world. It is a story that remains written in the human genome. It is a lace presenting the day-to-day travel of the underground kings to the world of darkness, and of the waiting women who were making images from the thread in the light of the day. It is a gift for an individual, a neighbour and the guild solidarity. It is the story of daily going underground and returning home, again and again. It's the story of Idrija.
The daily ROUTES OF FATE of the underground kings are mirrored in the author's interpretation of the lace through which the light is reflected into the space, changing and waving, same as our memories. The images of the repeating rhythm of the travel symbolically depict the community development, the community of free and proud people.
