In this urban landscape a young man on a journey makes his way accross the grey asphalt. He is walking downhill and from left to right, suggesting that he is ’going with the flow’ for now. His legs however are not well defined and blurred, indicating uncertainty creeping into his easy going demeanour. At this point, he still mostly retains his integrity, unlike the the figures and objects in the background which have transformed into strange objects consisting out of more exaggerated blurs and repetitions of themselves. The living figures are almost indistinguishable from the inanimate objects and have become inextricably intertwined with their environment. The resulting shapes and forms are haunting and spiritually charged, sometimes suggesting ghosts or otherworldly creatures, or sometimes suggesting totem poles.
