My name is Robert. I have lived in New York nearly all my life, and I have a profound interest in human expression. It fascinates me how we use our senses to interpret and express the world that we occupy. Gaining some insight about exploring the boundaries of what we can express sensually is part of why I decided to join Youth Insights.
A great inspiration for me is modern science as well as fascinating forms of pseudo-sciences, esoteric wisdom, and what we think we know about our universe. These paths of understanding open up immense opportunities for artistic expression. Something I love about this prospect is the idea of every individual having their own innate ideas to express. We are all integral to what is; we each have our own intuition.
I would be content with having art be a large part of my life. I do wish to contribute to mankind in some form, however. I would be happy if I got people to open up to new ideas through my art. It would even be fun and fulfilling to explore strange themes and concepts and share them with people.
The YI artists group seems to hold such promise and opportunity for me and all the others in it! It’s such fun to work with like-minded individuals. I hope everyone else in my group and in future groups realize the significance of what they are getting themselves into! It’s a wonderful journey!
