The exact origin of man is a heavy discussion, but historically we remained alive because we had each other. We were one body of people who lived in community, which meant eating and drinking together. My work is meant to urge us to take a critical look at our lives and examine if we are staying true to our humanly need of community with each other. Water, food, and community are a part of our history, but the need for human relationships is shifting and diminishing as other sources fill our busy lives. If you even took the time to read this, I hope you also take the time to be present, look at art, talk to someone, and enjoy some food or water...
