On the surface we are stoic, protected, and in control. But if only you could see what was happening underneath you would see veins pumping wildly – everything at full force – maximum level, extreme junctures, ready to explode.

Pressure, passion and pain.

And as the marble protection we’ve built for ourselves begins to be torn down by our own hands, as though Midas himself embraced us, gold emerges and we realize that we are fully conscious for the first time.
