VIEWS OF AN IMAGINARY CIVILIZATION, THREE FIGURES IN A JOURNEY OF ATTACHMENT AND SURVIVAL AGAINST THE BACKDROP OF A WORLD DESTROYED. AN EVOLUTIONARY STUDY OF AN “INSTRUMENT” WITHIN WHICH DEVELOPS A LANGUAGE OF UNIQUE AND MAGICAL QUALITY. MANIPULATION BY FINE STRINGS FULFILLS A CHRONOLOGY OF REFINED INTERACTIONS. DISCOVERING CO-DEPENDENCE REVEALS THEIR INNER WORLD WITH IMAGES OF BEAUTY AND DREAMS, WHILE “THE INSTRUMENT” TRANSFORMS FROM A TOOL OF CREATION INTO AN INSTRUMENT OF DESTRUCTION. REFLECTING ON PRIMAL EXISTENCE, THE BIRTH OF CULTURE AND VIOLENCE, MAGIC VALLEY MIRRORS HUMAN'S GIFT OF IMAGINATION. DETAILED MOVEMENT, SOUND AND VIDEO INSTALLATION  ILLUSTRATE THE POWER OF IMAGES, THE DELICATE BALANCE BETWEEN BEAUTY AND DANGER AND THE CONNECTION WE SEEK IN OUR CIRCLE OF LIFE AND DEATH.
