The Embassy of the World
Artist Pasha Cas has a sense that the world is moving towards unity despite surface-level division, splits into “pro-” and “anti-” camps, and the expansion of social media that have sorted people into groups and pushed them apart.
“If you look at human history, we’ve never been as united as we are today, and all these afflictions are just superficial scratches. We have the power to patch them all up and continue working towards unification.” —Pasha Cas
