Awakening might be a slow transition between a dreamspace and the raw reality imposed upon us once we open our eyes. It is our constant desire to insert the poetry of our sleeping fantasies into the material space. The result is a life curated by personal reverie and the expectations that this attitude could bring to the collective. Awakening is an unstoppable enthusiasm for more that subverts the idealistic romance from a classic spectrum. In this VULKAN issue, you are invited to dive into this concept through fashion, photography and insightful written pieces. In this cover, models Katty Ukhanova, Colleen Cole and Jayla Ford embody the birth of art. Among many possible interpretations, for us, art is born once a woman leaves paradise. This revelation flirts with Lilith’s myth, Ana Mendieta’s visceral artwork or Isadora Duncan’s mesmerizing choreography.
