With integrity to soul, the inner child, the authentic voice, I write these words not knowing, yet trusting the creative flow. A long journey it was to get to this point but the one thing that art taught me the most was its healing value at the core of any expressive engagement, big or small. A self-discovery journey is how I see my relationship with arts, after all. With every project, the healing process only changes its form. But, this is not to say I knew it all along, because for most part engagement with arts was an unconscious opening of inner worlds. Only once integrated and whole, at one with the little girl whose painting is hanging on the wall, the healing process became known. And together with it a realisation of how fast as kids we are being deprived of pursuing our expressive needs. Not conscious at all, we supress our authentic voice through compliance with educational norms. Rooted in logic and conditional scheme, education is very good at keeping imagination and creativity on a leash; controlling the flow instead of letting it be. And that is pretty much done by early education work. Once older and filled with knowledge from tip to toe, we can no longer remember what it is was like to be in touch with our authentic voice. Like there isn’t such state to begin with but only a myth that scepticism can take care of and dismiss.  It only takes few information at a time, but bit by bit our multidimensional state in which thinking is just another sense, gets reduced to living in our heads. But, if education system was all that drives dissociation today, there wouldn’t be words written to photography on the wall. Because not only face to face contact is in decline when photographic dimension stops us from being in the now.  Self- connection suffers at last. And with that our inner voice remains lost. How could it not in the light of ever-increasing noise of our hyper-consumeristic world? With countless number of images and text bombarding us every day, it is inevitable, the imprint will be made. There is more than enough data to keep us busy and distant from ourselves…
