‘'The Ravenous Flight of Misanthropy' is a dislocated struggle of human identity that questions the existence of one man and his tormented obsession. Riddled with crimes of passion and sacrificial guilt the work has been inspired by Canadian writer Margaret Atwood's poem "Eating the Birds" and is a solitary pilgrimage of distain for humanity, plagued by futile love and temptation of a gluttonous carnal desire for transformation and freedom from himself.'
