The title is derived from different ways I have recently been approaching different methods of distortion in my practice and the influence of comics into the current popular culture.  
This work could also be seen as a different take on the “walking in 2 worlds” trope in that it’s more complicated than merely 2 worlds.  We have to navigate the Native and non-Native issues as well as thinking about our ancestors and our descendants.  Our existence is non-linear and ignores the constructs of time.  The past is alive!
