“There’s something really funny about our music, because it’s often so heart-on-your-sleeve, a little bit. We know how that can be embarrassing. We’re just not worried about embarrassing ourselves anymore.” ¹ The album is an intimation of loss, self-destruction, and the possibility of redemption. ² It’s a song for when life gets too heavy, and you need a song you can sink into — just for four minutes — so you don’t drown inside yourself. ³ 

Solo exhibit — West Gallery

Excavations from the End of the World

First solo exhibit featuring 12 assemblages. I sought to recreate an archaeological experience one might possibly have, surviving the end of the world. The result is a mixture of little stories all laid out in boxes.
