"and" is the first piece to combine the two threads of presentation from my past body of work. It uses the narrative structures from "Grey Dress" and "Liars" where there is an exploration of psychology and perception, but it does so using methods first used in "Canon" and more recently "The Triumph of Death", mainly, the use of agressive editing and time manipulation.

"and" centers around a character who is always looking for more, for something different, for something else. In essence he is always asking "and". His main preoccupation is to create chaotic situations. He believes that by bringing together these different elements together beauty will emerge from the chaos. This is not so different from many of the visual and decorative arts where styles, textures and materials are commonly mixed and matched, the difference here is that his medium is his life.
