Testing Grounds



Positing a gift-giving of the self; our own body’s fleshly humility is given away. 

As an esoteric order, inveigling the curious and bewildered passers-by alike with strange, uncanny encounters of celebration and comfort — sunflowers become torches, staves, whips and weapons. Counting in foreign languages, amplified breaths, voices and tongues harmonised with music boxes; haunting the haunted architecture of a built environment ignorant of its ascensions and descents. Mnemonic ghostings embodying a Sisyphean melancholic hope bursting indifferent bubbles or the spectacles of happenstance apathy.
