The collection “Liminal Dreams” focuses on exploring the threshold between two realities, in both physical and emotional state of being. The colour “red” is used to symbolize strong feelings such as curiosity, anger, and love. I also use objects that create a bridge between “here” and “there,” such as doors, ladders, elevators, and stairways. This series has a deeper root that goes back to my experience as an immigrant. The duality of identities that I experienced as a young teenager ever since I moved to Canada can relate to the term “liminal.”

For this collection, I was inspired by late 80’s video game aesthetics as well as magical realism, using Cinema 4D.
