About the Current Work of Claudia McNulty
“Rabbit Whole” is a tryptic juxtaposing actions that are creating chaos for our planet Systems not necessarily new, but now functioning at warp speed, have become successful in diverting our attention, cloaking and concealing the deception. The power of constructing confusion has reached the obscene level of circus and all done simply by fabricating diversion.
