1992 — 1993    •    Series:  Dynamics of Balance
​This series addresses universal themes of existence, transience and loss. It challenges the main premise of Existentialism: "existence precedes essence"— and suggests the opposite: essence precedes existence. In other words, we are the product of our seed. Considering this, the burden of responsibility is shifted to the forces of chance and fate rather than purely choice.  The series continues to use etched photographic images and vessel-like forms.
