From me to You (Character Traits). This retro-styled interactive work playfully explores the power of words in a relationship. Individual characters are significant (others). From the lyrical to the absurd, unexpected changes evoke sudden and powerful imagery. This piece explores the ephemerality of our emotions, as well as the internal processes of meaning-making that shape our relationships to the people we L-O-V-E, or is it M-O-V-E.
