The title of “Other Worlds” refers to a personal and naturally occurring creative process I experience. I was inspired by the author Orhan Pamuk’s words, “Other worlds are the best consolations,” in reference to his process of living and writing. His observation perfectly captured my internal formation of ideas, which is akin to watching film fragments, in my mind, of an undiscovered story (world) and/or fleeting color images.
 
Pamuk's phrase also provides one explanation for why a finished art work can feel so satisfying to simply “hang out” with:  it is its own contained world and, simultaneously, it can invoke real and imagined worlds—spaces that offer the possibilities of a haven, the other and the new.
