" What is your Identity?"
Santra Navas is extremely fascinated by future technologies. She collects information on intuitive A.I and how to narrate compelling stories with the help of augmented and virtual realities. She attempts to challenge current ways of consuming and living in order to address environmental issues.She has deep knowledge on how the delicate ecosystems of rain forests have been threatened by land conversion, how Overfishing leads to disrupted food webs in the ocean. She believes every living being is an extension of humanity and constantly dreams of a universe filled with more forests than buildings.
Her alter ego however is fascinated by decomposing animal carcasses and macabre. She collects animal skeletal parts. She listens to melodic metal while collecting books that explains the history of cannibalism.
However these two sides compliments each-other, almost like Yin and Yang. One side allows her to understand the beauty of life and how to sustain it while the other enable her to think about death as the culmination of life.
“ the greatest calamity that has happened to the human mind is that he is against death. Being against death means you will miss the greatest mystery. And being against death also means that you will miss life itself – because they are deeply involved into each other; they are not two. Life is growing, death is the flowering of it. The journey and the goal are not separate; the journey ends in the goal.” -Osho
