stand perfectly still; watch the world wrap around you. she is such a beautiful place - and when things begin to falter and melt and crack and bend, through uncertain moments, nature reclaims that beauty - every single time.
Based on the poem 'Broken Pylons', and scored by Lamorran Trevenna, 'RETROSPECTION' looks back, surmises select moments in Matthew W.F. Senior's history up to this point, says thankyou to the most important people, and says goodbye to those whom we lost along the way.
"based on the poem 'broken pylons', written by myself, RETROSPECTION is not only a portrait exhibiting a stark contrast between now and then; between words and pictures - above all else, this is acting as a gateway, invaluably thanking the exceptional individuals who used up a part of their limited time to shape my story. with this picture, i aimed to translate light, and to reveal little pockets of memories framed by trees and cherry blossoms, encouraging us to cherish time… to appreciate the forests and the sun flares… to reminisce, and to seek tranquility amid chaos. there's this intrinsic, unstoppable magnetism between destruction and correction. sometimes, things happen without reason, and one day, we will look back at 2020, and wish that we had it that good. when you seek trouble, you find it every, single time, else it is fabricated - as voices pour into silence, colours are amplified, and forgiveness is calcified - the future is now, and we are our children. we absolutely cannot let ourselves recede into the celestial tapestry. without question, time is an infinite, endless loop of repeated learning... i was always frustrated with how some things weren’t instant - but i learnt to be patient, and calm, so now i understand that time, united with hard work, is essential to a deserving, well-earnt pay off. our world is all we have.
lay with me, still, on a field of grass, beneath swaying branches. staring into the sky, reflect, and tell me the story of how you ended up here, now, with me."
