Brief Description: Aberrant Observance employs symbolic language of text and image to describe stages of a metaphysical quest. The images respond to the notion of life as a journey, and to what is possible and what is inevitable. The theatre-like series of images suggest that life is a strange play. As a play has a beginning and an end, in Aberrant Observance, the culmination is self-knowledge.
