I spent the last years a lot of time in a small village in the desert and found refuge in the simplicity and silence of this timeless place. I found peace of mind and also a a lot of time for contemplation and inspiration that led me to this project. These are truly extraordinary times and one of its characteristics is the fascinating meeting of ‘the old world’ and ‘the new world’, the old ways of living with nature versus the new ways of technology, human values and wisdom versus algorithms and robots. Parallel to all of that we experience an precedented level of interconnectedness, a universal consciousness and spiritual awakening. Somehow it feels that the ground is shaking on so many levels and humanity needs to decide about its course, which kind of future we want to have on this planet.
