‘Dissension Into Chaos’
Eleanor Swan.

To some, it seems the world is in a state of chaos with great uncertainty and political upheaval everywhere. ‘Dissension Into Chaos’ has a political narrative, it is a social comment on the current state of affairs on both a national and international scale, but while it appears we are going through a very dark time in history, we are just going through a time of great change. Whenever there is chaos, it creates wonderful thinking, an opportunity for creativity and growth. We must re-assess and re-evaluate how we live our lives and I have no doubt, if we learn from the past and deal with this turmoil in the correct way, our world will be a better place to live in…chaos is the inspiration!
Friedrich Nietzsche once said “You must have chaos within you to give birth to a dancing star.”
