Human perception, especially self-awareness, is the central concern of my art. In my work, I think about thinking and about how past experiences shape future thoughts.
From the beginning of life, we each build a personal model of the world to make sense of it. We revise and expand that model over time to survive as our autonomy increases. We reflect, we learn, and we change.

The scenes in this story—now much more personal and complex—are significant to the me that is now. They take place in a world where nothing moves except the light.
