Portfolio:

LOOPING STATE of MIND

In LOOPING STATE OF MIND a society is portrayed that has strayed from the real world. In which the city as a living space, no longer matters.

His actors live and act in new virtual spaces. They are bohemians of a new generation.

They live their unbridled passions, playing with the symbols of wealth, luxury and power and show no interest in existing structures.

They are children of the “I-will-have-and-I-am” society.

(Elisabeth Rass, 2012)
