Cage of Light traces an environment of familial violence into adulthood. It witnesses the filter of addiction in life and love; it considers what sustains and protects, what constricts and harms, and the fluidity of these things. It addresses the practice of Zen and time spent in a Rinzai Monastery in Japan. It uses a language of struggle and seeks through the ‘food chains' of human animal life, including episodes from literature and dream, for ways to see clearly what we foment as we go, and for what is there regardless.
At sunset, a caterpillar: wriggling butterfly machine dances to the eyes.
