Originally conceived in response to some art work I had seen dealing with bondage. I was led to thinking how a hug could become a violent act and how we walk a tightrope between gentleness on one side and violence on the other, However as the piece developed it became apparent to me that it was largely autobiographical in nature. It was I trapped between different ideas and politics who attempted to walk a tightrope. Trying to balance between opposing sides, attempting to fall to neither one side nor the other, I was in the end defined by the rope.
