Ever since I was a teenager I have been fascinated by the ephemeral nature of relationships. What starts out as triumph soon becomes corrupted into a dialectic of power, leaving only a sense of chaos and the possibility of a new understanding.

As shifting phenomena become clarified through diligent and personal practice, the viewer is left with an insight into the inaccuracies of our era. - VIA
