Self-exposure is "an absolute prerequisite to genuine communication and thought," says world-renowned psychologist Jordan Peterson.
Museum of Me attempts to stretch this concept of self-exposure and self-representation in the Age of The Internet.

ONENESS is the passion of the mystics. It is what Eckhart Tolle calls the “alive stillness in the background.”
For Tolle's eponym, the medieval mystic Meister Eckhart, this oneness is in fact the Truth of God. “The divine nature is one," he wrote, "and each Person is both One and the same One as God's nature."
It follows that when we allow our focus to fixate on our separateness and our differences, we move away from divine truth, away from God, away from peace and love.
Fascinatingly, the folk wisdom that “the eyes are the windows to the soul” exists in almost every language, in every culture.
In “Windows to the Oneness” the artist uses collage to frame and combine a vast diversity of human “windows,” inviting you to look inside and see the Oneness within; to discover that every eye is an eye of God.
This exhibition proposes that we use visual forms to look beyond the visual forms, to see that beyond the appearances of individuality, we are all One.
