Recent Works by Dan Cohen explores the concept of Liminality: the quality of ambiguity or mystery that occurs in the middle stage of rituals. During the liminal period, conventional limits to thought, self-understanding, and behavior are undone. This creates a fluid, malleable context from which great changes and fresh perspectives emerge. His work is talismanic, insofar as it is intended to convey large amounts of information within a relatively limited semiotic web. The work deals with such themes as Humanity’s search for meaning, for the end of suffering, and the evolution of Consciousness.
