‘Longing for the Epiphany’ reflects on a world that is changing at the speed of light. The way we consume imagery, spirituality, safety, hope, and dreams.

In the meantime, we keep ‘Staring, gazing, waiting, imagining, fearing and longing for the epiphany that will deliver us from this ever-growing amount of existential uncertainty.’
The series reflects on how we consume images since the internet has made imagery abundant. How do we relate to context and content? How can images remain relevant if they always compete with millions of others? How can we make sure art doesn’t become invisible.
