Drawing on information derived through the study of science, philosophy, transcendent texts and inspired by music and art history these works explore the idea of the past, present and future existing simultaneously as infinity and reality as a continual flow of change. The images reflect a state of flux in our information age, the fragmentation of society, cultures, thoughts, and the way personal identity is connected to universality and is simultaneously fragmented by continual evolvement. I try to imagine a connection to spiritual phenomena that might explain what is happening and what would happen if our reality were suddenly to reveal this component.
