The Blue Wave game book was created for the Salt free tears exhibition at Galleria Structura Sofia Nov-Dic 2021.
It has been written by Valentina Sciarra and accompanied by graphics created by Victoria Staykova based on the author’s original drawings for the sculpture presented in the exhibition; made as a complex object, the book embodies Sciarra’s belief that games are a key element in accepting the concept of death. The book offers the possibility of an inner journey - playful - to face daily choices during the last 20 minutes of life before death. Being a game book, each reading of the book can offer different paths to get to the end. But ultimately, the basic concept always remains the same: how we can accept death in our daily life.
