From the Collection of the Artist

It’s the year 2113. A major museum is running an exhibition on life and culture as it was in 2013. You’re asked to write an introduction for the show’s brochure. What will it say?

Join us for an insightful evening into  life as it was known in 2013.

A sorry time in human history when time and money had more value than family, compassion and love or spirituality.  A time where very few realized that if you win the rat race, you are still only a rat.

Journey with us through the year that was as we showcase how humans would leave home before sunrise and get home long after sunset.  A time when children spent their formation years with strangers who became “parents” while parents became people, known only in the dark hours of the day, who were only their to discipline and talk about stress and worries that consumed their every thought.  2013 Was a time when “everything” could be bought: love, affection, trust.  Money was seen as the key to happiness and this led to a culture of constantly racing:  to be more and have more than the Jones’.  A time where the human life held virtually no value and respect for self and others became a foreign concept.

Come journey with us and witness the madness that was humanity in 2013.

I am a free spirit born in the Free State, 20 years to late. I am Ying and Yang. I am the girl next door who prefers daisies and peace rallies, but can just as easily rock at a rally. I love all things Latin and am sure that in my previous life (if that existed) I was Spanish. The dark side of me, however, tells me that I lived in Mother Russia. On a quest to find my happy-ever-after, I am in constant search of answers to all things that makes us human. What we do and, more importantly, why we do it. I hope you enjoy my rambles and would love to hear from you!
