Judit Navratil

  • Hungary (b. 1982 in Szombathely)
  • Currently in Oakland, United States.
  • My works are mindmaps of different levels of consciousness, comparing the collective subconscious with the very personal stories and memories of a person - examining archetypes, structures, network systems and the tiny miracles of nature.
