The Challenge of Realism is a dream state where the past collides with the future,
merging into a new realm of knowledge.
Exploring how the human body interacts with non-living and living objects, our perceptions of time, and some loss of control over it.
The research project explores the gestures of the past and cultural appropriation, considering these elements’ influence on contemporary movement. Mass-tourism, interpretations of stigmatic ideals, and images of an ego generation will fuse into a new perspective on current society.
