Kimo Arbas


J. Kimo Arbas’s works bring togeth­er the realms of tech­nol­o­gy, art and spir­it. They mir­ror his deeply-felt belief in the sen­tient inter­con­nect­ed­ness of the all. They are inspired by the real­i­ty of spaces that link con­scious beings; their con­nec­tions through those spaces to each oth­er; con­tin­u­ums between past and future, hid­den and revealed, inner and out­er worlds.
