Oentologie tells us about the personal journey, that of the winegrower in the first place and that of everyone. When we put the four pieces together, they build an allegorical altarpiece about the transition to a soul-based experience.

The labels symbolize particular ideas that the winegrower received from an entheogenic experience years ago and each one incorporates a theme that acts as an external projection of a particular internal truth of his, as an interface.

These pieces invite us to reflect on the possible relationships that human beings have with their environment. One by one, the labels build a journey of personal growth.

The challenge of this project was to translate extremely complex and profound philosophical concepts into graphics that also conveyed the right emotions through art direction. Each label invites you to delve deeper and deeper into the details and their meaning, taking you on a philosophical journey of self-discovery.
