"every one of us has their own cosmos
their own perspective
their own way of forming relationships
sometimes we need to find our place in the world
sometimes we need to realise that we are not the centre of the universe
KOSMOS SUITE is a journey through emotional states
KOSMOS SUITE is about darkness and light, death and life
.. and how we feel when we face the endless void - the night sky"
