All characters have their own tale. Some are or pining over a lost moment or a memory. Some are after answers that the viewers don't know the question to. Others have a secret that they are not willing to share. Generally the characters exist in our world and interact with our symbols of found or made items. Yet are oblivious to their surroundings. Only acknowledging themselves and their thoughts.
The pieces differ with what they hold some have symbols of love, lost, unrequited even jilted. Some are more playful handling fish, birds butterflies. All with their own meanings that I make associations with.
They are individual and their stories all different. With different perceptions and understanding/association of symbols from viewers gives a range of interpretation, their stories are suggested for the viewer to build up their histories.
