Destined to be Happy, a site-specific immersive environment created by the Moscow-based artist Irina Korina, explores an existential borderline between myth and reality, fact and fiction, theatre and life. Deprived of specific storyline the installation is a game of associations and narratives ranging from Russian fairy-tales to global technology of the future.

Working with Irina I worked from her sketches to bring to life the giant Emoji sculptures. I created each piece by sculpting foam sheets into 3D forms and creating a bespoke fabric covering to fit perfectly to the form.
