Summary 
APORIA was created in a specific city, yet speaks to the phenomenon of rapid growth being experienced in many urban locations around the world. When surrounded by such an environment, the cultural and physical landscape feels stretched to its limits. Reality exists in a continuum between construction and destruction. It is a constant state, a fluid abstraction, where change itself seems to be the alpha and omega. A desire to explore the underpinnings of such an environment, and how it demonstrates itself on one’s psyche, is at the core of this work. APORIA is the culmination of this effort, a dreamlike narrative pieced together from the observed landscape. It is a fictional manifestation of my own subjugation, devoid of any specific time or place, both surreal and familiar.
