"Do my stick insects know that I'm a living organism, or am I like a God to them?"

 

Interdimensional Nostalgia: a strong desire not to go back to a certain place or time, but to a sense of connection. 

Things seem to be captured in their own world or reality. They are longing to enter the world of everyting, longing to travel through reality dimensions. Subtle details in my work reflect on both the impossibility of entering someone's reality as they give away a little hope. A hope for connection with a mysterious stranger who has been in the same dimensions of reality as I have been.
