"This is a personal favorite of mine in the project. Dark 2 Light serves as an incubator for my next work. It is only the beginning. Combing such visuals with my LIVE Performances will be another potential direction. And the composition created is one of a melding, shaping volcanic painting. To push the limits of the mediums and media of which I am working with. To evolve my practice forward with these particular processes. It is an exciting adventure. And one which I look forward to bringing you on." - A
Dark Dark World is the first of the four core pieces which found the project.
This piece was intended for LIVE Performance. Then the Quarantine was enacted. In the solace of the studio, Dark Dark World took on a whole new life. It became an immersive work with sound effects and green screen animations.
Truth and reflection.
It's all right here. And It's dark. It's Dark Dark World!
And those pretty little shells
You see out there
& They're me
