Ideas and thoughts are abundant in our conscious and/or unconscious presence. It is in giving an identity to them that it gains a virtual or a physical existence; and in doing so, that thought or idea does not belong to one any longer as it develops a voice of its own, having a significant impact on someone or something. The title Trespassing suggests that I am or will be revisiting the project, but only at my convenience.
