LOST. Episode 05 –The Explorer

Michail Pirgelis

Info: Artist Michail Pirgelis interprets with Lost the fifth archetype, The Explorer, with whom the actual hero’s journey begins. Explorers follow a call: they long for change, feel the urge to break out of the life they are used to and hope that the journey will lead to personal development. While the first four archetypes prepares one for the journey, departure is the central motif of the fifth archetype, coupled with evaluating and leaving familiar patterns in interaction with the outside world. In this phase, crossing the threshold from the known into the unknown is crucial.
