Exhibition: Oct 6-27

The theory of quantum mechanics suggests that all possible outcomes deriving from every circumstance are carried out within their own distinct universes. This series is a visual exploration of collisions within the multiverse, where parallel lives are fleetingly merged into one. Memories and formative experiences are slammed together in cyclical layers, revealing unseen and imagined narratives. The purpose of the work is to engage the community in inclusive and meaningful discussions regarding the construction of social and personal identity and how both are in an ongoing process of creation and destruction
