"I gave myself one rule: each piece had to highlight an interaction between at least two souls. It scared me, but also drove me forward. It demanded that I observe my own sensibilities, and through the process, found myself in an open-ended discussion between myself and these characters. Them noticing me and me noticing them through the lenses of their own desires, cultures, silly gestures, and ways of mourning. Whimsy is a continuation, as I flesh out the sometimes deep and sometimes surface level relationships that fill our everyday lives." - Robert Lococo
