 Thomas Bils investigates the mutability of truth and narrative. Reflecting during the beginning of the opioid crisis on the absurdities familiar to him from growing up in the suburban South, Thomas crafts images that are often drawn from personal experiences, carefully blurring the borders between fact and fiction. In these slippages of recollection, he takes on the role of unreliable narrator to develop a situational ambiguity, prompting the viewer to identify where the fabrications occur in an attempt to grasp meaning and order.
