The Berlin Series reflects an imagination let loose on Berlin the city. Snapshots of experiences metaphorically transform the cultural nuances. Imagination uniquely interprets an experience, travelling with the ‘being’. While abroad, the environmental context may change culturally but the imagination is ever-present. The mind explores physically impossible imagery regardless of location and where, like the real world, it can either make sense or not. The cultural conflicts and challenges presented physically in the world add to the vibrant collective collision of city and imagination. Left on its own, imagination takes from its surrounds to create a new symbolic utopia. Meanwhile, Berlin creates its own serendipitous experiences on all beings.
