About The Work

What are the elemental questions of our lives? We are all born into the experience with body. Learning how to interact and communicate in it during our time orbiting existence. And through our collective encounter with the mortal coil, we ceaselessly ask questions, gathering information and approximating conclusions. In the end, when we finally exit our bodies, we leave many unanswered questions. Most of which have traveled with us throughout history. What are these questions? What do they mean?

The artwork Beta speaks of this. The mechanical bird found within the suitcase is representative of us, ceaselessly asking questions about, and to, the invisible.
