The next theme Awakening exposes darkness and secrecy infused with beauty, comfort and hope. It beautifully explores common society issues targeting women and looks at different facets of a woman’s existence. A Beautiful Mind is a tribute to one of the truest mavericks of the modern world – Steve Jobs. Conceived in strongly chromatic tones against a backdrop of pure white, reminiscent of the creative mind of the man.
