This series of works express the profound sense of irony that I feel stemming from the collision of traditional cultural systems with the juggernaut of global technological advancements. Communication technologies have made virtually any point of our planet accessible to our ever growing population. This technological growth brings information and with it, renewed pressure on both public and private lives. Will variations in customs and lifestyles gradually fade in the glare of a global monoculture, or can we retain some meaningful vestiges of our cultural diversity?
When the world changes, religions and mythologies struggle to respond. Myth today has much the same function it has always held; it teaches us how to live a human lifetime. My symbolic system is based on the same themes that have been presented by artists and mystics alike throughout human history. The symbols I present are based upon the awakening of individuals to the knowledge of themselves as parts of the whole planetary system; and simultaneously as individuals without boundaries or horizons.
