Note: A handful of titles from the Underworld series were inspired by poems by Louise Glück, Dylan Thomas and Miltos Sachtouris. Additionally, installation titles were drawn from poetic lines from Four Quartets by T.S. Eliot and I Fellowed Sleep by Dylan Thomas. The artist expresses gratitude to these poets.
