"Stories are one of the most powerful ways humans teach, explain, organize, and motivate. Throughout history, societal structures and beliefs can all be distilled into stories. Their power does not lie in their veracity necessarily, but in the relevancy in meeting dominant communal needs. From this point of view, it is revealed how tightly narratives are woven into who we are and what we do. Like the air we breathe, they intrinsically surround us. They are In.Visible.
Thus, stories may be the exact tool needed to address the current issues we face on a global, societal and individual level. What if all narratives, archetypes, and themes could be re-invisioned into stories that might guide Modernity’s next steps? “In.Visible” is a raucous chorus of 22 artists’ voices speaking for a world where we are connected to each other and to the ecosystem of which we are a part."
