"Latent Heats," Lake's newest (and most sinister) series reflects upon those difficult years in an attempt to apprehend other people's suffering and accept their ultimate fate. Lake states: "These horrific events, unfolding through the media daily in my birthplace, and the uneasiness and apprehension associated with loss and grieving began to merge together, so synchronize. I was the vortex, the meeting space of several disconnected events that formed a personal sense of tragic ending; a belief akin to the fated sense of despair associated with the end date of the Mayan calendar. I began to think, and even truly believe in a single fated day for the end of all things."
