“The Thin, Blurred Line”

I am interested in the tension between extremes.  Through my exploration of dualities and dichotomies, I’ve developed an interest in finding the point where opposites intersect.  I believe there is much to be learned about our own experiences if we juxtapose dualities and observe these tensions, acknowledging when we begin to feel uncomfortable.

When do we notice humor in the horrific?  When does the thin veil of reason give way to madness?  Sane/insane, dreams/nightmares, humor/darkness, beauty/horror, curiosity/fear, creation/destruction; I believe somewhere within the thin, blurred line is a brief moment of coexistence between dichotomies, waiting to be explored.
