MAINFRAME is a work which explores distorted symmetry. It is studying the evolution and decay of a reflection, and how a reflection does not resemble the original. There are 11 moments or scenes that are revisited later having been reimagined, reversed, or are cut up and strewn about. The work is primarily exploring the spiritual places we go during different moments of a reflection.
