A Note From The Artist On ‘Let’s Try The After (Vol. 1)’

The ceremony of dying generations without any guidelines for how to move forward makes
these times easy for the mirror wars to continue.
We can hide in the beauty of what has been stolen from us because somewhere there is mystery in not knowing.
How can the ruined survive without a back up plan?
Let’s try the after.
