Intimate attitudes are gleaned from and woven into expansive ideas, becoming both a celebration of individual empowerment and a haunting ground for loneliness and isolation. Last Lives in the Universe reflects singular, finite relationships within the dynamics of power and communication.

The solitary or singular exists as a binary condition, defined in part by the broader context around it. Micro narratives provide portals by which we can peer into a complex world, citing incidents of global relevance as well as the immediate or personal repercussions. These singular attitudes serve to focus an awareness of embedded power and relationship dynamics, proposing that it is these interactions which provide a quantifiable measure of intent. An historic ambition of activism or revolution becomes manifest as a normalised state of being, a form of communication with its own peculiarities - questionable, romanticised or diffused. Here the multitude is recognised by the component parts within it – be they people, thoughts, or actions, they propose tangible realities that reflect the vast urgencies surrounding us.
