Artist's description:

Absolute despair rouses us into extreme action.

Extreme despair and psychosis are similar in that the unified self is shattered and we encounter the Leviathan, the Ahriman or the "destructive spirit" within. This despair is a sickness, a malady of the mind and spirit no longer whole or tethered to the Divine. The Death is destroying the self so we may be awakened to a greater sense of reality, a return to the whole and transform into a greater spirit. Inspired by Kierkegaard's concept of despair and it's cure.
