Viktoria Modesta explains, “A huge change is underway, the waves are parting at the core of society to make room for acceptance of people like myself. An understanding that human value cannot be limited to the physical body, it is the evolution of ideas with diverse minds that can get us through to the next challenges we face on this planet. Technology can no only help us break the physical barriers of ability but create an equal playing field not governed by centuries of perspective and attitude. As we all expand our identity into the unseen realm of metaverse I hope it it prompts a deeper connection with our true selves and our humanity. Realize your personal power and make art and technology a language that you are fluent in!”
