Abram Morphew set out for the wilderness of the Birkhead Mountains in search of seclusion, and a place to let his thoughts wonder in peace. He was delighted to discover tunnels, previously only known to the elders of Birkhead, leading to a magical city where he would happen upon a fellow survivor of the elements...
Bethany Carder, awaking from a hypnotic state induced by a small band of mystics, discovered Abram Morphew wondering the ancient underground tunnels beneath the mystical city. Carder was fascinated by Morphew's ideas of healing through experimentation with light, sound, energy, and the power of intent. Emotional turmoil, once so powerful, released through instruments and moving images. They continued forward, energetic pullies attached to cages covered in flesh, time travelers in moments of here connection, near connections, missing the point only to find it resides within and without you. This is the story of the binary marketing show
