Kalisti’s digital art comes from the symbolism of Discordianism – a folk religion about the struggle between order and chaos.
Eris, the Greek Goddess of Chaos and Discord, threw an apple into a party of the gods, triggering a war amongst the mortals to prove which goddess was the most beautiful.
Eris is the deity from which Discordianism plucks foundational symbolism. The central teachings of this folk religion are about the struggle between order and chaos.
The apple represents chaos, and the pentagon represents order.
Kalisti plays with these concepts within her art, sometimes trapping the apple within the pentagon to represent the ways in which society imprisons our chaotic halves.
