001 is an artist and a human. She strives to understand both the world and her world, as well as how these two aspects of the objective reality fit together. She writes about isolation and introspection, about the long journey of self-discovery and the rocky peaks of the human psyche. Her real, human name matters very little in the realm of words and images. She is 001 because, while she feels alone, she continues to hope she will not remain this way forever. With her art, she is trying to carve a place for herself into the bark of reality. Artwork by Michael R. Pitter
