I have created a brand new site for my latest project. Here you will learn more indepth about the concept and dive even deeper into the theater of my mind. Have a look. And please be so kind to bookmark the page and follow as I will be posting more content soon.
Literally it’s a house on a head. Since it is about a bunch of characters, the personifications of my psyche, living in my head, after all. I tried other ideas, like showing the head split open and the characters sticking out, but that seemed a bit, well, disturbing.
So far you can see there is room just enough for four, but more is expected to come and fill this house. Before long it will be a zoo house and I’ll have to put extra floor or two. You can also expect this house to be featured in some of the works.
Speaking of works, I need to put up some content here. What use is the logo and all this babbling about the series if there is NO content? Stay tuned…
A way way back I wrote about a concept I got working on for new art project, of which takes a giant leap away from what I was usually doing. Based upon Freud’s theory of the unconscious and the three areas of the human mind-ID, EGO, and SUPEREGO- I created characters that personifies these three areas of the psyche, and then some more. Of course it was a bit difficult at first trying to figure out exactly these little beings will play on their roles. After writing out draft after draft and researching on the relevant topics, here I will share the latest statement around my concept. I assure you this won’t be the final, it will likely go through another rewrite or two. But for now I think this is pretty close to what I want to address.
If you let the voices inside your head take over your body for one day, what would they do?
One would seek to satisfy its insatiable carnal pleasures with no regard to their own safety or whatever consequences that may befall them.
Another would choose safety over risks, often ending up in a reclusive state and wallow in sorrow and self pity caused by self.
Still another will find value in whatever they perceive and will fight tooth to nail to protect it, even if it means resorting to violent force.
Yet another will settle down being resigned to whatever predicament may befall them, then calmly seek ways to cope with the outcome.
These are the voices that live in your head and mine, keeping you steady on your toes or wreaking havoc.
I know what you are thinking. It doesn’t feel finished. That’s because it is unfinished. There are times I don’t know how to end things. And as I had said, this is not really the final draft and likely to get changed. But then, isn’t that how it always is with art, or even life? Nothing is finished, or complete while you are living. That probably doesn’t sound right, but as long as you have the capability to think about something on regular basis, it kind of makes sense, right?
At least though I may have gotten the main point across. Maybe later I will come back and polish it some more. I have produced few art pieces and currently trying to put together supplemental contents (“trying” cause, you know, Life happens). I will be sure to document that progress here and soon start posting some art. I welcome your thoughts and suggestions as well, some inputs from third parties can be of big help.
Until next time, stay safe, and enjoy your Turkey weekend!
Eyes: Brown, but you rarely see them because it’s hidden under his thick black hood.
Hair: Don’t know, he never takes off the hood
Appearance: wears nothing but black, head to toe, prefers hoodies, has pale skin because he’s always covered, has reddish tear streak coming from his eyes (it is said that once he looked up to the sun and it burned out his eyes which caused it to bleed)
Ellex Deux is a mystery. He keeps to himself, does not like to talk with others, even when he is in a group meeting. He just sits in his place listening to other people’s dabbles and never bothers to convey his own opinions or ideas. If you gave him a plate of poo to eat he would eat that no question asked. I’m not kidding.
ED is passive to his surroundings and his position. He lives life like Que Sera Sera, whatever will be, it will be. He has no desire to try and change the situation and just accepts them for what they are and how they play out. He is quite adaptable, and he knows how to work his way around to suit his needs without changing the obstacles.
