The works on display tackle two themes: ‘WW1’, a collection of work exploring the relationship between image and text and the power of effective communication.
‘6° of Exploration’ provides a visual representation of one of mankinds greatest achievements, the journey to the moon, and with an ever increasing population, the work also touches on a quest for a new home. Could “our bright future” lie away from our current place in Solar System?"
