Existential Dread of an Artist

  • Blogs

A Sine Wave

  • Blogs

I am shaken by this digital barrage of simulated forces – sine waves, making it harder to sustain a high or a normal for that case. I have been shaken by this unfiltered mess of arrivals! One moment of tranquility, sometimes, makes me feel normal… Read More »A Sine Wave
