Juncture explores the yearning for and fascination of connection amidst diversity.  It presents the journey to unite with one another, and to see the unseen beauty within each individual.

Bold strokes of movement point to the frantic chaos of our desperation for acceptance, and dissonance indicates the struggle for humanity’s accord.  We have a deep seated desire to connect with wandering souls - to hear their stories and marvel in their differences.  We crave touch.  We crave love.  The human condition is one of constant want, and our justification naturally lies within each other.  Nothing in this world can deliver this warmth, and nothing can deliver satisfaction and meaning the way one spirit does to another.
