DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE
When Alice fell down the hole, she bumped her head and bruised her soul.
As the new year unfolds, we indulge in new chapters of hope. Prolonging optimism and leaving the dark times behind are good things, but do we really get past the shackles of bad habits? Or do we simply leave our peace to the lucky rabbits?
Down the Rabbit Hole, an exhibit by Aldrin Cajulis Tamidles exemplifies both the beauty and the ugly, the in-betweens of embarking on a new journey. The artist conveyed the euphemism in a once chaotic pandemic world that is renewed through the unwavering urge to evolve, make space for the things that help people live longer, and bury the things that have the potential to leave one’s soul spiraling into the unknown. The exhibit leaves one wondering whether each new year’s resolution sustains blessings or simply nurtures more chaos.
