Abstract
All creative acts can be seen as intermediary attempts to bridge the gap between the known and the unknowable. In this thesis, I discuss a number of material and immaterial interfaces (e.g., the body, holes, desire, mankind, sacred sites) - all of which concern humanity and the divided nature of our existence in space, time, and matter. Prompted by urges and the allure of origins, my creative work addresses the body as a site of irresistible paradox. Inverting the boundaries between what is and what is not, it continually draws attention to the void of longing.
