I am interested in how they influence beliefs and perceptions by altering and subverting them. From here derives the desire to further explore the need for uncertainty and the metaphysical loneliness of the human being, addressing such issues as solitude, amnesia, memory, suppression, doubt and the sublime. read full statement
