A Glimpse of the Hive is a set of experiments designed to foster meditation on the disunities of identity and language and the intangibles of experience. The works resist narrative and lyricism, hinting instead at a unique poetics where thought, word, and time coalesce into a sensuous music of the mind. The collection arrives at an idiosyncratic personal symbology that summons energy from the disruption of logic in favour of image and movement, ultimately finding redemption in its recursive fragmentation, and ritualistic reconstitution, of consciousness.
