Nympha

Nympha pictures a corporeal mergence of two bodies. We attempt to mitigate the desperate desire for intimacy by fusing our physical forms. Yet the fusion is always fleeting and incomplete. (We suspect that it does not last longer than the gestures we perform.) When it briefly emerges, this new entity is never truly what we hoped; it is not a combination of us, but its own organism.
