The Inscending Spiral

In 2005 I wrote a screenplay called 'Nirodha Point', a self-reflexive look at Hollywood, fame and material excess. With the intention of expanding the world created within 'Nirodha Point' I immediately started writing a prequel, but it's sprawling narrative failed to fully coalesce. As a result I have decided to produce a series of drawings that will explore the ideas in their current nebulous state entitled: The Inscending Spiral. This blog documents that process.

The outside is not a fixed limit but a moving matter animated by peristaltic movements, folds and foldings that together make up an inside: they are not something other than the outside, but precisely the inside of the outside.
