Another in a series of whimsical stages for life wrought from recalled dreams. What would it look like to piece a shipwreck back together incorrectly? The early morning moment when I paste people & places onto a train of thought, but ultimately feel the weight of complete dysfunction. Gold barnacles mark this memory of a shipwrecked dream.

No fat caterpillars selling "free money" here...just raw limbs & collecting metal.
