Flux is a Latin word meaning “flow.” We commonly use the word for something in a state of constant change; we say it is “in flux.” Both meanings are relevant to this piece. Two contasting themes flow in and out of each other, constantly changing in their character and form, but also struggling to merge and demonstrate that they are part of the same world.
