Utopia Candle: Walden
Imagine the world as you would ideally like it to be.
Throughout history, people have designed utopias, perfect worlds that aren’t exactly real and yet that serve to illuminate real needs. Contemplating utopias restores and reinvigorates us by helping us to focus on what things could, and might, one day be like.
Inside this beautifully-crafted jar, is a candle whose subtly blended fragrance helps to evoke the perfect world described by the American writer Henry David Thoreau, a realm of nature, beauty and harmony.
Lighting the candle creates a moment in which we are able to reframe, and gain perspective over, some of the problems of our world today.
