TOHU explores our chaotic existence as a mere reflection of our known universe. This captivating duet takes on various macro-processes that occur in the large universe and transpires them as abstract and metaphorical processes. The artists draw the viewer into their re-imagined micro-universe as they strive to make sense of our most enigmatic behaviours.
