In addition to expert knowledge, a discussion about the future requires good imagination and great inspiration, said Victor Pinchuk, the founder of the Yalta European Strategy (YES), the Victor Pinchuk Foundation and EastOne Group at the opening of the 15th YES Annual Meeting “The Next Generation of Everything”. The event is organized by the Victor Pinchuk Foundation.

“Here we have remarkable Western and Ukrainian politicians. I am not a politician but I would like to say a few words as a collector of art. A dialogue about the future requires good imagination and great inspiration,” he said.

As part of the opening ceremony of the 15th YES Annual Meeting, Victor Pinchuk presented the Wave UFO installation by artist Mariko Mori. It is a symbol of future, showing a world in which connections surpass its boundaries, and people are connected with one another. Mori’s work is an insight into the universe of human spirituality.

The interactive installation can fit three people inside who can hear sounds and see images visualizing their brain activity which are being read and analysed as they sit inside the capsule.
