The Survivor

Without disturbing it, an owl stealthily breaks free
through the matrix mesh she came from,
and looks up to the moon to guide her to freedom,
as a thin scattering of wispy clouds stretch across it.

Survivors are the ones who adapt, just as this illustration
adapts from feathers and flight, to moonlight and stars.

I created this artwork by hand, cell-by-cell,
taking five months to complete, carefully twisting
each individual cell into dynamic relationships
with its surrounding cells.
