THEME
ConTEXT-The use of text and language elevates a work of art where it becomes a visual code. A layer of mystery is added, and as humans, we begin to decode what we see to translate it into our minds. The boundless perspectives of text probe ideas and concepts, and a new layer of visual storytelling takes place. Whether your work is filled with a dissertation or has just one single character. Show us what ConTEXT means through your perspective.
