"Your creative self is a delicate creature. I have been honing my own creative side for a long time. Unavoidably, I became fascinated by the theory of creativity - how to consciously understand and harness it. Creativity can help us absorb and be inspired by the world around us, it can help problem solve, it can lead to kindness, adventure as well as innovation."
Nicola Anthony, 2016
The Intersection body of work journeys back to one of it's three origins, Yangon.
Intersection is an artistic map, exploring geographies, names, stories and histories in three
cities around the world. The work investigates collisions of place and meaning in spaces that contain overlapping consistencies; whether it is the vestiges of colonial influence, the
relentless march of capitalism, or the stubborn refusal of history to disappear.
