ABOUT THE ARTISTS
 
Parallel worlds

Where does a “Parallel World“ exist.
In a different universe?
Can one discover this world through time travel?
Is it perhaps possible to see this world in a dream?
Or does it only exist in one’s heart?
The world we see is only a part of the entire reality
which is composed of many worlds existing simultaneously, side by side.
We can find “Parallel Worlds”
whenever we open our eyes and hearts.
They are always with us.
