koyaanisqatsi: a Hopi Indian word meaning ‘life out of balance’ My designs illustrate hundreds of stories; microcosms and macrocosms teeming with symbols and motifs of people, art and life. The scale and minute detail prompt the audience to physically move closer to the artwork and in doing so, metaphorically connect with a multitude of world issues. By standing back, we distance ourselves. Real issues are forgotten or lost as we move through a 'life out of balance'.
