“Before all things, there was madness. And this madness was called Dwolma and was without beginning and it was without end, ageless and churning.”
Dwolma is a visual presentation of meditative mutany captured by a series of hallucinatory visuals that are seemingly boundless and infinite. This dynamic piece pivots reality with pleasure through its kaleidoscopic geometry and veil of mysticism. Dwolwa initiates a reformation of the familiar form of water. Through its transience between disorienting viewpoints that subtly shift in pattern, pleasure is laced with mimicry and deception. We cease to register actuality through the absurdism of digital abstraction. These discernible signs are symptomatic of the deceptive language that cast our future.
