Cacophony of the spirits

Description

The manufactured environment has always factored into my projects. With "Cacophony", I began by playing with code. I took a picture of my family and made a four-colour separation in ASCII. Running these scripts through a code check indicated that it was all wrong. But it didn’t look wrong and so I kept putting together things that seemed to belong together.
I now look at this piece, and realise that it is about a passage through experience. I begin with a child’s memory of hiding terrified under a bed in fear of a nuclear war. I end the sequence with nature reclaiming a wasted space that came, not with a bang but through the whimper of raindrops.
