Stefanie Bálint-Gruber — Naiad

Compost & Cosmos — Summer 2023

How can myths become alive?

Naiad seeks to explore the enigmatic essence of living myths, inspired by ancient beliefs in celestial aquatic creatures that grant wishes. Eukaryotic spirits intertwine in veiled water worlds, weaving momentary myths, listening patiently, breathing in, and persistently rushing back.
