The End and The Beginning is part of an ongoing dialogue about the intersections of humanity, technology, spirituality, and the possibility of magic and mythos amidst chaos. This iteration explores the cyclicality of ecosystemic adaptations that derive from responding to continual shifts in physical, emotional, mental, and technological landscapes. At an ever-increasing rate our pasts and presents are written, forgotten, and rewritten in an effort to rectify who we have been and who we are, with who we should be, and what we could become. Yet who we are at any given point in time may simply be the result of adjusting to the aftermath of our predecessors – a point along a continual loop of creation and destruction, a point of no end and no beginning, or a point that is both the end and the beginning. Are we working towards something imperceptibly larger or merely evolving/devolving as dictated by circumstance?
