Not everybody has to be the same

I’ve been exploring Cosmopolitanism for several years and would like to share it through my new series Cosmokids. This is not an abstract theory. This is an axiom. It is not a matter of faith. This is reality. I used to think about Cosmopolitanism in the digital world, as we are connecting with other people on our planet through the Internet.

We are different, but we are together

But we were one whole even before the Internet. It was all along the way. The term Cosmopolitanism appeared in ancient Greek about 2400 years ago. Diogenes was the first to coin the word ‘Cosmopolitan‘, which means ‘citizen of the world‘. Then it became a part of the Stoic philosophy.

We are from the stardust

We are used to living in a society, and that's great. But from our birth, our community has set frame. Then we are who continue to have these frames unconsciously. We identify ourselves by religion, race, gender, style, profession. But all of us are children of the universe from the Stardust, we are Cosmokids. We are integrity.

I want more people to think about global basic things. This can help society make decisions from a holistic perspective. Derivatives of this are such things as peace, ecology, the development of mankind. We all want to live in peace. This may be possible due to decision-making at a different conscious level, which I want to tell in my work.

The boundary of your state is not the boundary of your moral concern

Technique

 

I used embroidery on metallic photo paper for the Cosmokids series. Also, I’ve bought old frames at a flea market. These artworks and their century-old frames are an integral whole. You can feel the past and the present moment at the same time while watching them.
