Ahnessa believes that through close observation, everything becomes more alive, let it be a person, an act, or the lights and shapes of nature. Through interest, curiosity, and playfulness we simply become more aware of our surroundings and environment, opening up a microverse of layers, meanings, and interpretations that help us to become more human. This is the renewable source of motivation for Ahnessa, which is more of an instinctive than a conscious process. Her drive is to find patterns through connections to develop a systematic theory for the web of impressions that create our mutual awareness of the present moment.
