Part of my interest in creating portraits by writing a text rests in the idea that language aligns the mind with the body. It gives me a platform to consider the ways in which it permeates all human activity. How we use and navigate language structures determines how we perceive and experience reality. Narratives, highlights language used in a social context, in terms of engaging and relating to others through words. Meditations, emphasizes the ways that we individually absorb words to form an internal framework that fundamentally shapes our actions.
