Director Statement

While in deep contemplation about the human psyche, I randomly wondered; "where does love come from?" Being away from home, I carried my love with me to where I was. I looked deep into it and asked how she was still with me. The more I looked into it, the more I realized that the lines between myself and my Beloved were blurry and that love was simply just a reflection of that. This project is just a way of expressing that Revelation of where love came from, it begins and ends in one's experience.
