DESCRIPTION

The Road

 Before us -  

In between a concrete present, an illusory point.

The mythic anonymity.

The potential of discovery - getting lost - again.
The autonomy of choice.
The bravado of choosing.
The regret of lost possibility.
The Road - nexus of free will and fate,
Ruled by instincts, logic,

Unpredictable contingencies.

The Road explores one of the most complex of human conditions -  

the autonomy of choice; the principle of selection that all choices

come at the exclusion of others. In varying symbolic permutations,

it wonders through a range of conceptual, stylistic and philosophical

propositions, engaging notions of free will and fate,

irony and sincerity, myth and truth, action and indecision,

along with a dose of irrationality and, perhaps, regret.   

 

The Road is the journey of unending choices,

marked equally by achievement, approval and success, 

as it is by assumption, misunderstanding and failed attempts.
