The idea for this work was unintentionally created during my last escapade in Vienna, Austria last July with the help from Keyon Gaskin and Faustin Linykula. The work environment is a key player and is set to be extremely atmospheric to promote “softness” and ease. With the proper music and the proper tone of voice used to guide the subject, I wanted to create an environment that felt like it was wrapped in linen and smelled like sweet potato pie. Each subject gave me their idea of “SOFTen”, and each one was spot on. Thank you Kevin,Jarris,Vaughn, Darrell, and Rahmar; You’re all lovely and beautiful.
