This piece is about being engulfed or overwhelmed by something. Sometimes things in our lives take a hold of us, or surround us so much that we lose ourselves. There has been some debate on the formal elements of this piece, that there is possibly too much of it, but it turned out exactly as I envisioned it. I am obsessed with obsessions. And sometimes our obsessions cover up who we are. Whether it’s the house being clean, or making sure you always have a plan, or never having a plan. At times these things can add to who we are and be a part of our personality. But there are times when we become “overwhelmed” and lose the balance of our personality, obsession, identity or whatever form you want to put it into. More or less this piece is a reflection of my own feelings of being overwhelmed and trying to find the balance in the form. The piece is made form the folded pages of an entire dictionary.
