Somewhere between the time products were shown on television in a way that demonstrated how cool they were and when they were portrayed as something a person needed in order to be cool among their peers is when I became severely disillusioned by the natural order of things. Stuff that made me happy I could understand. Stuff I had to associate myself with in order to be accepted I couldn’t quite grasp. From then on, art became a refuge to explore the depths of my relationships and the complex role individuality plays in connecting the human race.
