andPlay & Victoria Cheah – A Butterfly On Your Shoulder Into Years And Years To Come

The permanence of a whim, like a casual decision to make your first tattoo a butterfly; a choice you regret, or forget, or evolve with over time; a whim for which you needed frivolity in order to take yourself seriously.

The superficial nature of standardized beauty can contain contradictory depths - scars are decoration, desire can be destructive, and beauty can be offensive, rough.

Clarity and noise aren’t opposites; both exist within the other and provide context for the work of intentional attention.
