Eutopia, the concept of a perfect state of being, is something I believe is achieved when one allows room for genuine expression of self. As individuals we all experience the world through our own individual lens; we live and are guided by different sets of beliefs, preferences and more. Therefore, everyone’s idea of eutopia will be unique in one way or another. This project’s purpose was to explore the idea of eutopia from the perspective of someone other than myself. This point of view then shaped the body of work presented to you below.
