Zeitgeist (Everyone Is An Island), 2004
I was living in Barcelona during the spring of 2001. I met many people there in the city, up along the craggy coast and on the islands to the east. It was an amazing learning experience. Oddly, it is often within the most intensely social atmospheres that one becomes painfully aware of how alone we are. This realization completely changes ones perspective of society and yet does not diminish the experience. You simply change your expectations. Zeitgeist is my attempt to represent this realization.
