About the Artwork
For the Pulp Edition, Kimya wanted to create a work that was not confined by a singular viewpoint. She wanted to make it personal for every onlooker and hence made a picture using only letters, that from a distance are not recognisable as letters but as an abstract pattern. As the pattern is observed furthermore, the intrigue in the observer takes them on their individual ‘trip’, not bound by a given perspective but their individual perception.
