Work Overview

This is a work about a process: a process of searching for an equilibrium, a recovery, a convalescence, an anchor in the midst of chaos; of learning to balance in between moving forward, relapsing backward, and standing undecidedly still; of reminiscing what has been lost, yet looking forward to what is to come; of a cyclic repetition, finding ways and reaching towards that innocent and unadulterated beginning.
