The hold of prescribed belief systems has become diminished in our society. We have the freedom to attach whatever meaning we want to whatever we want. Dead Tails, Dead Roots undermines the idea of fixed meaning, demonstrating the fickleness of signs and symbols. The work alludes to extinct myths and the loss of their origins. As ominous sounds circulate we ask ourselves, ‘are we intruding or are they waiting for us?’
