     Decided to go and rework one of my older pieces. It doesn't really fit with any of my other works but it was the first real piece I made in Thesis. 

     Going to turn this post into a bit of a Journal entry here (better here than Facebook).

Recently my grandfather had a heart attack (he's 83). While scanning him the Doctors encountered a tumor in his pancreas. He was very weak. He could hardly speak or walk. Thankfully though, his love of Whisky saved him. The tumor didn't progress and was deemed to be benign. Doctors believed his alcoholism had a lot to do with it. Funny that alcohol has been proven to suppress tumor progression. So basically that drink of poison saved his life.

     How does this relate to my work? Thinking of alcohol and addictions, I realized how many countless things there are that heal us but can poison us as well. Like alcohol which numbs our pains, gives us liquid courage for those paralytic times but can also wreak chaos with foot-in-the-mouth situations and inappropriate behavior. Immense pleasure gives an invitation to immense pain. One can't really go far without the other. This whole thing gave me a interesting perspective on my work. Instead of being in between growth and decay I thought maybe the girl is in between healing and being destroyed? Same thing really, subtle difference. The former is a natural occurrence, whilst the latter suggests an obvious experience of pain and pleasure. Its all in the interpretation maybe but these words make a difference.

Tea Party

Playing with Explosion Fx in Cinema 4D.
Went to a party last night. Potent moonshine. Dark rooms. Unplacable strobe light. And this song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5tRBcKTrdQA

Rutt Etra-izer

Took my previous two works and put them in to the Rutt Etra web emulation because I was sad and needed something bright and colorful to look at. It's the WebGL emulation by Felix Turner called the Rut-Etra-Izer. Got to see an original Rutt Etra at my school a while ago. Thank goodness for hoarders. It's currently broke, I have hope they'll fix it someday.

Spring

Simultaneously hair and water, decaying and flourishing, falling and hovering, standing still and moving.
I think it's about time I started having some fun again. Rainbows and sunshine. Rainbows and sunshine. Rainbows and moonshine.

Tornado Insides

Referencing Shiva, origin myth of the Ganga, landscape, and portraiture all at the same time. Decay and birth. Organic and synthetic.

Internal World

The insides of an object creating another object entirely. On Sculptris.  
I have a dual fear of being both invisible and visible.
