It is difficult to determine where to find our true voices as human beings and therefore, we are often left on repeat : constantly re voicing the truth of another. This is also the case for the very important thoughts that we dictate our lives by. The question here is : “Where is our truth?” Slowly, via the processes of life, there comes a time when the ‘human’ mind realizes that it was never really in control of determining the potential of the soul that it is directing, it is then that the deprogrammed mind can come forward. This release from oppression brings forth a new understanding of the defining powers of ‘the other’ and ‘the self’. The influences of the world are unworldly and can make someone feel less than human until the chains are broken. It is this concept which my art seeks to explore. The natural and the inhuman.This is ‘the stories of:’ for those on repeat, unable to think, unable to learn, and bound to and by forces unknown. May they soon break free and conceptualize their freedom.
