Just thought I’d share. Let me know what you think!
Also this, just because.
Thanks for read/watch/skim/eat/absorb/ing! 😀
We are surely a part of our natural surroundings. Serving as hosts for countless small organisms, our survival depends on the offerings and sacrifices of other forms of life. We are so deeply intertwined with everything else and on such a scale that even the atomic matter that makes up our bodies was once stardust and is now consciously reflecting on just that very idea of the universe’s self-awareness.
Those are the kind of ideas I’m trying to inspire with this piece called “We Exist In Nature.” Made in 2000 it still serves as one of my favorite early ventures into digital collage. It speaks to me of planetary harmony and separate paths to the centered enlightenment of diverse interconnectedness. What does this image say to you? Leave a comment below, share with friends.
Edit: And now you can get it on a card, mouse pad or why not even an iphone4 case thanks to Zazzle! 😀
Add your own quote, note, or what ever floats your boat to the inside and give it as a gift or a thank you.
Yes, I even slapped it on an iphone case. It was fun!
You should be able to put the design on other things they offer too. We are living in the future! Enjoy and be well!
Today I designed a moody cosmetics bag over at Zazzle. I’m not sure if anyone will ever buy the thing and make the design come into actual existence as a product, but even if that never happens it is still really cool to see my artsy photographs come to life on a random little bag. I’m looking forward to doing a whole bunch more of these babies so stay tuned!
The soft glowing ebbs flowingly
through the cold, dark night
rivers flow, the moon shines
light dances and fades knowingly
shapeshifting to our delight.

And here we all are. So insignificantly small when we look at the clear night sky, the winking stars so plentiful so far away and so long ago are telling us an important story. A lesson about who we are, who we will be, how much time there is reminds us of how we fit in. It’s all over in less than the blink of an eye. The lifespan of a gnat, the life’s work of an ant, a flickering flame sending an ember on an upward journey. Gone forever, unforgettable and with illusions of grandeur we rise and fall. From the deepest depths we crash and roll, breaking with the tides, endless, for all eternity. The hypnotic dull roar muted by clear glass doors, lulling us back to sleep. Lost in dreams. Alone with the hum of the fridge, the ticking of the clock as seconds pass forever, out the cold night’s breeze. Men strong and desperate work for squanderings on pitching decks under false lights that hide the heavens. And the fish die, giving themselves, ending their lives, as is their place, under the stars.

#fafatl on twitter will start you on a scavenger hunt to find some awesome artwork from local artists in Atlanta around the first Friday of each month. Their website is http://www.fafatl.com/ which has all the details. Thanks to Danielle M, I participated for the first time helping them to find a piece but also dropping off three of my own little space scenes around town.
