  • Catastrophes takes a jab at systems of logic.

  • The aesthetics of confusion and chaos can also be the aesthetics of freedom.

  • The architecture of permanence is a traumatic delusion but through the shatters catharsis emerges

  • Every brick laid, every code written is possibly a punctuated moment in the false grandeur of humanity.

  • Are these matrices a zero sum game or do the monuments of the future reflect through the fissures?
