“ANIMA II (2017) symbolises the materialization of internal experiences into an external physical form. The work investigates how this new perspective can shift one’s perception of our respective inner worlds. Can one’s interaction with a constructed symbolic object work to develop a deeper understanding of our inner being?
The transformation between inner and outer reality is actualised in the work by application of the ‘Wu Xing’ system, deriving from Chinese philosophy. This scheme links inner emotional experiences to five transitory phases in nature: Wood, Earth, Water, Fire, and Metal.” – Excerpt from Nick Verstand’s website.
