Between good and evil

To locate an object in space you need two reference points. In the case of a human being this two points are the good and the evil. We were taught to choose between good and evil. But what you’ll gonna do if you find out that good and evil are not two different reference points, but one and only? Are we kind of lost?
Every human being is absolutely singular and unique. But we were taught to compare our self with others and from the cradle to the grave we’re always in competition with somebody else. School, sports and jobs, sometimes even love are about being in competition, we are always desperately want to be better than the others, we want to be the best and, ironically, not to be our self. We were educated to be above everybody, to have a bigger car, a better house, a higher position and a prettier wife. It’s such a waste of energy and after all a waste of our own life and identity.

flames, veils and desire

What remains in the shadow or covered always will be much more exciting and intriguing than what it’s obviously visible. A twist of secret will rise our curiosity, isn’t it?
Depictions of a sexual nature are as old as civilization with depictions such as the Venus figurines existing since prehistoric times. Now days more than 70% of men from 18 to 34 visit one, more or less pornographic site in an average month. According to compiled numbers from respected news and research organizations, every second $3,075.64 is being spent on pornography. Every second 28,258 internet users are viewing pornography. In that same second 372 internet users are typing adult search terms into search engines. But the internet still is not the most popular form of getting pornography.
Pornography is the portrayal of explicit sexual subject, but still, I think the mystery is much more exciting. Read more flames, veils and desire

Love and other oddities

There’s a thin line between love and hate and sometimes we may slip over without noticing. Don’t matter how weird it may sounds, extremes over-lapping each other and sometimes melt into one. There’s a small step from indifference to desire, as well as between love and hate and back all over. The human being are a strange creature and there’s no Freudian coach to explain our weirdness. Any attempt to create any kind of pattern to explain the human behavior I believe it’s useless. We are same as we are absolutely unique and different. The human soul is a muddy and unexplainable universe.
Actually I believe we don’t have the same reaction regarding the same particular aspect at different moments on the time line. And not only because things and we are changing. Just because. Emotions have no patterns, our reaction is unpredictable. Things which may be unacceptable from our point of view once, today or tomorrow may stir up our interest. That’s how we really are even if it’s hard to accept, it’s difficult to face our self. Read more Love and other oddities

lights and fractals – a trip into abstract

What we see it’s really what it is? I mean, blue is really blue, a wall it’s really a wall or the sky is above or… beyond? What we can see, smell and touch, this world and this reality it’s the only “real thing”? Well, I don’t have a scientific answer, but I’m not so sure. Maybe everything if it comes down to zeros and ones may look different. And maybe there’s an unseen,  parallel universe. Or two. 😀

“Messing up” pictures it’s a fun full activity at least. Digitally speaking, there’s infinite possibilities and options, variable experiments and million of effects can be used. There’s one of my trips into a parallel universe build from actually ordinary images. Have fun! 🙂 Read more lights and fractals – a trip into abstract

Drawing with light

The term “heliography” was first coined by its inventor, Joseph Nicéphore Niépce, to identify the process by which he obtained the first permanent photographic images. With its classical derivation from the Greek “helios” meaning sun, and “graphein” denoting writing or drawing. The term encompassed both the source and the process in describing this first successfully permanent means of letting light record itself.  In other words: drawing with light.
Niépce was the first individual to secure permanent images by photochemical means.
Louis Daguerre and Joseph Nicéphore Niépce coated a copper plate with silver, then treated it with iodine|iodine vapor to make it sensitive to light. The image was developed by mercury vapor and fixed with a strong solution made of ordinary salt. Read more Drawing with light
