A sequence of punctured holes in either depressions or impressions are everything and nothing at the same time. They can be distinguished and linked by the ways in which light reaches their outer edges with varying intensities, bringing life and direction to the vacuum (soul) within.

Inspired by the role that microtubules play for signal transportation in the human brain that creates consciousness. Thus if, "consciousness" is produced when a quantum dispersion of conceivable outcomes collapses into a single actuality–the collapse–this is like the instant the curled-up copper sheet finally unfurls and becomes visible, or when I go from three dimensions to two dimensions (proto-awareness to consciousness) in my art. Even though every event took place in three dimensions, reality exists on the two flat dimensional picture plane.
