This work focuses upon the repetitive cycle of life and death, and the inevitability that, where life is, death will eventually follow. The series traces a progression from the beginning of life through to the acceptance of death together with concepts related to the infinity and reoccurrence of this universal certainty.


My advice to future students...

Don’t be discouraged when you find yourself stuck for ideas. If you take a step back for a while, your mind will (hopefully) come across a solution. Also, your teachers are your best friends, and can give you a new perspective from which to approach your work.
