Swimming in the gap spaces reaching out and repelling generating ripples in the unstable territories of dark spaces within peoples consciousness. Waking us up while allowing us to maintain ownership of the changes and transformations. Wordless substance, moving where there are instabilities. Blind and all seeing sniffing out lies and truth dichotomies drinking blood and sticky substances that ooze from perfect pores. Dream maker that scours our depths and makes us grow up and around encasing us in binding light, waking us up to our true potential. Dream creature stirs and dances in the fragment space and generates uncertainty and confusion breaking up crusts and boxes. Stirring up animals held in chains churning up solid substances into liquid soupy material for reconstituting our lives.
