A new set of downloads from the unconscious. Fishing is good.
Recently a series began called “From the Matrix” (see Surrealist Gallery for this and others).
Given the idea that what we see as real arrives from a matrix out of which it is created, it occurred to me that looking into the moment that it first arises could be of interest.
It further occurred to me that there must be things that started to arise and were “early prototypes that just didn’t make it.” They didn’t fit with the rest of what arose. They sank back into the matrix.
However, those short-lived species of existence could be quite interesting: noses and beaks, birds and people, smiles and beaks, different configurations of eyes to beaks.
It’s also easy for people to respond to smiles no matter where they are embedded, or whether the rest of the expected body comes along with them.
I like the sense of “arising” that is the feel of this collage. And the uncertainty about “for how long”.
There are several prototypes here. Some of which did “make it”.
