M.A.H.A.S is Studio Rö’s current exhibition, and its inspiration can be traced back to the concept of oneness. M.A.H.A.S, means “Creator of Celestial Life.” This phrase speaks to the interconnectedness of all life and the idea that we are all part of the same universe.
Our position as artists is political. We have a responsibility for both content and form. Today, the preservation and respect of nature should be more than ever at the heart of our personal and shared concerns.
Solely glamourizing the industry contributes to neglecting the environmental and labor costs of fashion and fashion shows. People gather from around the globe to analyze new fashion trends and styles, but less attention is paid to the challenges that the industry is facing.
Patriarchal trauma has been passed down to us for centuries and has even been challenging for men. We cannot talk about eco-feminist concerns without valuing men as equals. It’s not about domination or superiority, it’s about harmony.
The fashion industry as a whole is ever-changing, so attempting to pin down one evergreen definition for categories like sustainable and ethical fashion is futile. For example, you may prioritize living wages and safe working conditions. But there is so much more that can be classified as "ethical." Others may value second-hand clothing more than ethically made garments. Perhaps vegan clothing is your top priority. It's difficult to define when not everyone has the same values. Because the movement is still learning and growing.

I believe that photography can generate empathy, emotion and interest in other people's stories and I think that this is important and of great value, since with the possibilities that exist today it is an art that can travel and be easily transported from one place to another and go far.
Black Friday is more than just an environmental concern. It encourages people to spend money they don't have on things they don't need, and it fuels mindless consumerism.
We now need not only experiential wisdom but behavioural wisdom as well. We need the same authentic, raw and innocent perspective to recollect the sense of oneness that we might have lost while developing our ego boundaries. It’s only through the union of our adult experience and a childlike sense of interconnection that we can create a harmonious world for all the beings that we share our planet with.
