The concept for Pacific was initially prompted by a 1970s electronic record of the same name, which then evolved into a meditation on identity.  Pacific is an exploration of how sound and tone can evoke colour and form, and how these elements work in tandem to simultaneously construct and reflect culture and character.

The Pacific is the largest oceanic division, a representation of the geographical and mythological lines that come to craft islands and identities.  Borders can shape a hero’s refuge or desolation; desert or oasis; utopia or dystopia.  Pacific is an articulation of the physical and metaphysical borders that fashion each of our personal islands.
