My dreams are made of different components; the island unifies each character to co-exist with one another. "The island" as I call it, is the main focal point in my dream, the characters are reincarnated to this place from various parts of the world and just as fast as they arrive there they have to learn how to survive. Each character is not given an option of nobility nor class; in fact stature does not even matter. One example is the character “Break Out” who was a business man/ sales person who began working for a major business firm in Europe. Many months went by, and he was fired from his job. He failed to realize that it was his own actions that caused him to lose his job therefore so he committed suicide. Now that he is on this island he appreciates life more, but he is unable to become human ever again because he did not value the greatest gift of all: life.

One of the most dramatic forms of metamorphosis is the change from the immature insect into the adult form. The insect has a typical life cycle that consists of an egg, a larva and then it emerges into an adult insect. The character “Break out” embodies these different metamorphosis and they also serve as different discourses for universal symbols such as love, hate, despair and compassion. These symbols pervades throughout the universe, they have fundamental forces and principles that are part of our character.

Your obviously tallented, but what I think makes you work special is that you do somthing most dont; you see beyond the peice. You are able to create an entire world around you peices, that is a gift, dont forget it.
