“Methods of Completion” Is a journey through various patterns of endings.
A variation of attempts to end and begin and return. To fall, land and fall again, to finish, and to repeat.
It is a comment on the absurd circle of repetition, revolution after revolution, love after love, orgasm after orgasm, death after death, apple after apple, war after war, shower after shower, shit after shit.
We ask, are we afraid of endings, of letting go of something, or is there a comfort, a safety in allowing patterns by creating a structure in something that otherwise would be undefined?
Is this a method of completion, and therefore a catalyst to the madness?
A reset to the cycle. Or symbolism of this cycle itself. A breath in this continuous motion that is existence.
Man is a creature haunted by a vision of “completion”, what Sartre calls "a being that causes itself “.
As we strive for the complete, we search for the endings throughout our lives and history; the end of the day, the end of a meal, the end of a story, the end of a territory, the end of the world, the end of innocence.
“Methods of Completion” is a embodiment of the relationship that exists between all of humanity and the idea of an “end”. It is a reflection of human life, its circles and its history.
