CAROUSEL IN CRISIS
Carousel in Crisis demonstrates the sense of escapism involved in a technological world as children obsessively send text messages while riding carousel horses rather than enjoying the simple pleasures of childhood.
Inspired by my love for animals, childhood dreams, and the power of imagination, this collection is an invitation into a roller coaster ride of dreams and introspective narrative of escapism into the subconscious. Horses are used to symbolize the power of the imagination and escapism into a world of dreams. This dream world is humorously characterized by personal perceptions, synthesized symbolism, social commentary, and explosive movement. It represents the confrontation of life’s biggest fears while playfully celebrating individuality, demonstrating the importance of holding on to one’s inner child and never letting go.
