Collection: Serotonin Ping, Selected By Zoë Taleporos (online exhibition)
About the exhibition
Serotonin Ping is a collection of images that aspire to elicit feelings of well-being, stability, and happiness. Pets, food, inside jokes, oddities, simple statements - these are the things that cheer me up. Hopefully this show makes someone else crack a smile.
