Sally Strangelove is an enigma—to herself.. Questions of Identity and Reality entangle themselves in blue within and beyond her personal space-time continuum.. Finding herself continuously led by some extreme mystic drive to actualisation, Sally Strangelove skirts the boundaries between art and psychosis in an attempt to evade hypnotic enslavement to a prescribed consensus reality fraught with pathological normality, obsolete political hierarchy, and ongoing systemic atrocity..
