Artist Inspiration

“This window is a call to action inspired by the time I spent exploring the shelves of books and crates of records at Pandemonium. Listening to music and reading can be powerfully transformative experiences that change the way we relate to the world we live in. This augmented reality mural is an invitation to stay open to the magical side of life. “

“The inspiration for the animation was to create simple loopings of the lovely painted design by Baraket. With such a strong and colourful design piece, I decided to create a simple animation to the artwork so that the animation does not overshadow parts of the design.”
