We seem to be caught up in a transitional phase, where mankind itself seems to be changing. Driven by a desire for enlightenment, we speed into the future, shaping our world on the wings of our imagination, together with our longtime and loyal friend, a horse!
Ahorse! is a titillating journey through the history of human imagination. Seated on a saddle stool, we duck headlong into the pixel soup of our visual culture before emerging again, refreshed and refuelled. Full of new ideas about life, its meaning, and the future. How can we successfully adjust, now that the modern technologies of imagination seem to be taking over? Ahorse! helps us to enjoy the ride, evoking happiness and curiosity.
