In his own words;
In a world with humans, we are constantly chastised for personal decisions made for us. Frozen choices sacred space is basically highlighting man’s journey through life, from infanthood through teenage hood until man found himself. Working on this project was simply based on elevating humanity whilst enabling individualism. I believe every being has a right to make personal decisions as deem fit and no human has the right to question nor judge such being. We are here to create a safe haven for mankind.
