All the elements in the work are bestowed with a high level of animation. They come to life in the imaginary world created, not for them, but by them. The relationships are formed when the various elements are forced to coexist. This is meant in the sense that Space only exists if there are Things within that Space, once the Things no longer exist Space likewise ceases. The elements become entangled with one another and typically have no meaning or purpose alone.

There is something dishonest about attempting to reconcile an idea into a single, coherent, or resolved image. Total resolution is an unattainable level of clarity; just the attempt immediately fantasizes the objective. Instead the work has choosen to capitalize on the notion of entanglement where forms cannot individually describe their environment but require another to bring any of sense of understanding.
