Vol. V: “Act/Break”

 

Vol. V: “Act/Break” challenges new entry points into storytelling, with pieces meticulously put together to create a whole from many parts. They dip into a moment, a day, or even years, and form an experience that leaves their characters changed. We feel them build, break, splinter, and reconnect. The beginning, the end, and the space in between—that exploration is what we wanted, and it is most certainly what we got.
