Purple it is, the colour of ambiguity—fragmented by circumstances, overwhelmed by emotions. I need to find myself to move forward.
Narrative: In any event, particularly emotional ones, our understanding of ourselves is challenged. It feels as if, in order to move forward, we need to re-assemble ourselves, touching each piece thoroughly and fading in and out of existence to grasp it whole.

Intended as an apt reminder, Blue exhibits water scarcity as a threat for the longevity of human existence.
