My current work revolves around solitary suffering and joy we all experience yet try to stifle. In our age of technology and so-called social media/networking we are constantly trying to rid ourselves of the solitude necessary for self-exploration and understanding.
At first, some of the pieces may seem like bondage, and in a way they are, but this is only part of it. The bondage and conformity is self-imposed which only leads to despair. It is only through self-awareness that we may experience the shame required to pull ourselves from this turmoil. This we must all experience and pass through in order to resist and change.
This experience does not need to be grandiose or epic. We have these little moments everyday. We conform and create opinions without really understanding and eventually realize, hopefully, that we must stop, see with a clear mind, and change.
