We are storytellers by nature, creating stories in the course of a day. We say good morning, perhaps good afternoon and definitely goodnight. We are also trying to see our lives in a totality by creating one life story.

But not everything can be storied. There is a huge amount of things that defy interpretation. Sensitivity towards abstraction is also a medium to understand our day, a dance or the sense of our lives.

New Narratives occupies the shared space between stories and abstraction. On the one hand the sweet security of a narrative and on the other hand the continuous flow of ephemeral movements.

New Narratives is the story that our mind unavoidably constructs.
New Narratives is the transcendence that our mind fortunately enjoys.
