"The idea behind my work is that I wanted to incorporate dance, music and art into one unified composition created with Adobe Photoshop. The ballerina represents the dancing body in motion, full of life, passion and expression. The French horn represents music and is shown facing towards the the head of the ballerina. (I feel this can be seen as a sort of self-introspection, but this backwards element is for the viewer to interpret as they see fit) Lastly, the spiral pinwheels represents art and creativity. Displayed in a specific formula, these swirls create a beautiful, symmetrical pattern of color. I feel that art without structure/rules is merely chaos." -- Ben Precup
