“We tell each other stories in order to live.” - Joan Dideon
Ever since man first discovered that one could create a stencil on a cave wall with a hand & pigment to convey a message, we have been telling stories and creating myths. The power of the visual to convey meaning has allowed us to pass down cultural traditions, create secret societies, organize into groups, explore spiritual & religious messages, understand historical events and learn life’s lessons.
