I was born in USSR, Siberia ( Now Russia ) and I am someone who is a traveller at heart. A CItizen of the planet, so to speak, which was unimaginable in the conditions I was born into. I felt limitations and borders very strongly and was planning an escape since childhood.
That is why I was always excited to explore and understand what does freedom actually mean and how one may break away from the conditioning of their childhood upbringing and culture. That is why my journey led me to India.
I don't think it is only my problem or my country's problem. The conscious mind in general can not create freely, because it literally is the puzzle all put together by conditioning.
Now it is more obvious than ever. "What got you here, won't get you there" is the motto of my life and art since 2020 and I see so many people are now struggling with the old or the "rational" ways no longer working for them. It is now rational to believe in the irrational. But HOW does one make this shift?
