Jasmine has mainly chosen to capture the themes in theatrical visuals. That is no coincidence. She is a great admirer of David Bowie. It’s safe to say that his interest in the theatre has been the cornerstone of his success. Major Tom, Hunky Dory, Ziggy Stardust and Alladin Sane are just a few of his personae. Most of us will clearly remember them. Each step in his career produced a new character.
