This is the work I submitted for “Congregate,” the thesis exhibition for BFA seniors at Maine College of Art.
A deep-rooted disconnect. A discontentedness. A stumble, a fall. An epiphany. Another. This plane of existence is rather taxing, isn’t it? I will show you mine.
This portal is the closest it can get to a physical manifestation, though it reaches far beyond the ghostly layers it managed to weave for the time being.
Float through it for an eon if you wish. Let it breathe you in, soothe your soul, unfurl a story for you, be your escape. There’s nothing wrong with embracing what you need.

“The experience of being, the spiritual moment which takes place when one stops feeling used to day-to-day reality…that can be the moment of creation.”
A deep-rooted disconnect. A discontentedness. A stumble, a fall. An epiphany. Another.
This plane of existence is rather boring, isn’t it? I will show you mine.
No, this isn’t an escapist fantasy. Some sneer upon my happiness? I can’t hear them.
I’m too busy flitting among my void.
