Recent work has been inspired by decadent novel Against Nature by Joris-Karl Huysmans. In this story, main character Des Esseintes becomes disillusioned by modern urban life and escapes to the countryside where he carefully designs a unique aesthetic environment. The atmosphere is saturated with rich colors, patterns, and nature, all of which aim to appease his cynical attitude, desensitized palate, and hallucinatory visions.
