To escape a great pain as it was inflicted upon me when I was young, I once stared so hard at the night sky that it swallowed me whole and transported me into a safe place in the future. In that moment I understood trauma as time travel and have since worked to capture this elusive expression of time and the echoes of a fractured self through my art and music.
