The art, animation and poetry are my own. The music is by Jahzzar. This is an interdisciplinary piece that incorporates media as a collaborator. Light is a recurring theme in my work, and the squid's bioluminescent ability was an endless fascination. I am crazy about joining text, graphics and imagery and am bent on allowing each art form to maintain its integrity.
