'Altern' speaks to the bi-polar persona in our character makeup. The positive and negative elements parallel the Eastern philosophies of Yin and Yang where the existence of both forces is required to create a whole, one cannot exist without the other. The Yin dwells in shadow and under hood, captive while the Yang looks on from the light, free. The horizon separates yet joins the two in perpetuity.
