Description

Nothingness Conquered Them began with the observation of religious freedom in areas of mass consumerism where the consumers are not believers of religion; only profiteers. The focus becomes areas of religious belief that are persecuted, murdered, and deleted by means of wars and genocides for being an unwanted narrative.


This deletion of narratives, the censorship of lives and histories, the nonallowance for those who differ from ourselves continues to end in a pool of blood. Silence through death seems to be the collective’s only form of resolution in the removal of memory. One person’s compassion can change the outcome of the world.
