Experiences on the verge and the verge of experience.
Think of a border, a boundary or an edge and you are thinking about the verge; the point where something begins or ends. “On the Verge” is about the thin line where life and death meet. It is about the moments in between. The moments when you have to cross your physical and mental limits to survive, to remain standing, to keep on breathing and to keep on moving. Only through crossing your limitations, you can leap beyond and move on to constantly redefine yourself. Part of being on this line is an extreme situation paired with exhaustion and endurance verging on a release. During this moment of release, a purity is revealed; the simplicity of being. Just being with a higher force and your fight to live, to remain standing no matter what.
