Demiutopia is a creative collaboration between me, Evisa Isabella Rose based in Greece, and Duan Mackenzie based in New York City. Two places combined together into a perfectly matched surreal planet. The message that we want this idea to reflect is that despite the differences in location, language, color etc. there are SO MANY similarities in the world we are living in! That we, as human beings, should embrace each other’s differences and not let them divide us from one another!

When you look at a photo of our planet taken from the space, do you see any borders? Cause I don’t see any! The most dangerous borders are those inside someone’s head! Replace the word “hate” with “curiosity” and you might find a “treasure” in front of you. We were born with a heart inside our bodies. Please let’s use it. Also this project is dedicated to the people that have emigrated in other countries: to start seeing the similarities between their “new home” and the one that they left behind and make their adjustment easier…

When I found Duan’s photos on Instagram, I felt something familiar looking at them, like I had already been in these places. Then I realized that they were the ideal reflection of mine! And this is how this idea was born. Note that none of our photos until now have been taken on purpose. This is just the beginning for us. My goal for this project is to be able to travel more and more and more. I believe that love, creativity and art are the only hope to heal our world! Let’s spread together this message!
