This is a digital recombination created in the present out of various images that bear a significance on my past over the last few years. The rotating doughnut is made up of the workshop recombination image and hints at one theory that the universe could be torus-shaped…one of the ideas being that if you walked long enough in one direction through space you’d end up back where you started. By layering images from my past and present with the doughnut spinning through them my idea is that they all exist at the same time in my mind; a representation of everything existing at once. A walk through a fragment of my actual experienced part of space. This is very much an idea that hasn’t become clear yet and I can’t explain it succinctly. Below are the separate images at full opacity:

This is a continuation potentially called torus forest home for now, its the same images as above with the addition of the forest behind my mum’s gaff, a little bit of space that has absorbed a lot of the aftermath of various parts of my past, good and bad..potentially a suitable background and one that has been consistent. The changes in tone a nod at a sequential narrative through time, kind of cancelled out by the doughnut that spins through all of them relentlessly.
