Projects > Maelstrom

This work confronts the conflict between our everyday activities and the fleetingness of our existence. We are dragged through time and through space, but ultimately we are unavoidably lost in a swirl of oblivion. Given this dissonance, I questioned the meaning of our everyday activities. Can we find satisfaction in what we do? Why do we even do it? The case I try to make largely refers to myself, which gives my work an undeniable autobiographical component.
