The present series brings together the macrocosm and the microcosm, exploring external and internal topographies of the natural and metaphysical worlds.
The artist writes: "The contemporary world is a huge digital simulation. People are concerned with making money, for which we are willing to sacrifice our own energy, the energy of the sun, water, nature... we think that we have freedom and our personal space, but instead we are constantly being surveyed. Modern technologies allow us to detect every square centimeter from outer space, and it is up to us to find that private space that allows us to be ourselves and escape... detection."
