Miles Peyton: Obaa

Opening Friday, February 3rd, 6-8pm

I move with a team of selves
I observe and learn from each one
Sometimes we find something to eat and feel happy
I often eat plastic beads
When we merge, our attention harmonizes into a sharp bright point
We congeal into a centralized organization
It feels good
