“A Better Tomorrow” by Justin Plakas is a continuing series of images that combine both physical and digital manipulations. For Justin, the series started as collage-based sketches and over time an entire world emerged. This world uses language and symbols that we are familiar with, but evokes a sense of secrecy, mystery and anxiety.
