<===  QUAOAR: Primitive, Fundamental  ===>

Quaoar ( 2002 LM60 / 50000 ) is about the primitive levels of connection between an individual and what is around them. This is partially about fundamental internal needs and how they are expressed or fail to be expressed in the outside world and the residual angst that this generates in that person. It is about inclusion or exclusion in all forms. Are you inside the circle or out in the cold. The circle could be a social circle or a racial group or it could be the realm of nature itself. There is a very primitive concrete form of expression that results from that sence of connection or alienation. The individual may be anywhere on that continuum from a desperate need to belong to a need to be separate and free from those connections and the resulting expectations. Thus we have here the interface between opposites and the creative process where they change from one to the other.
