About this series: “Painters claim that light’s everything. But that has turned into a cliche motto- we’d better forget about it.
In this series, I try to sum up what’s left of these beams that would be visible to the naked eye and to recollect any rays easy to grasp by our bare mind; our sun is of that kind that’s been poisoned, that kind that’s irreparably broken. In our case, any light serves as a survival manual, yet we are restricted to access it.”
