In 2010 I found this concept for Lavazza Espresso Prize. I imagined a chef using food as a mean to reach a higher purpose, not only a physical satisfaction. This is something more than happiness: a group of values, mental and physical sensations extremely close to spirituality and religious ascent.
The work of art also aspires to be a mean used to reach higher purposes.
We ourselves aspire to be part of a higher purpose.
