Circle of Wills focuses on memory. Specifically, the tenuous link our brain produces between the actual events of our lives and our recollections. On another level Circle of Wills comments on the ability to manipulate memories to alter perception. In our minds we can change the way things look and sound or we can erase them altogether.
This work offers a colorfully surrealist take on the topic. It is an attempt to illustrate this phenomenon by pushing a singular aural and visual event to its limit. The result is a wholly new experience.
