2023 Edition


As dusk falls, a giantess is taking her comfortably seated audience for a walk through luxuriant undergrowth. Her fluorescent gaze radiates throughout the landscape and transforms everything in her path, as if the surroundings were coming to life before our very eyes. Who is she? Where is she taking them? What are they looking at? A limited edition version in fluorescent ink will show other details in black light.
