Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Welcome my friend, you’ve arrived just on time. Please take a seat and make yourself comfortable. Inhale and exhale a couple times. In... Out... In again... Great. Try to relax. Imagine each and every muscle in your body slowly shutting off. Focus on the sound of my voice. Direct your gaze at the center of this circular mechanism. Scintillating spirals zoom in and out like a Dan Flavin fluorescent light fixture. Do not look away. Keep your mind on my words. Think of nothing else. Soon your eyelids will get heavy, so heavy that you cannot hold them up. You wish to close them and go to sleep. You can still hear me. Let’s swim deeper into unconsciousness. Go deeper asleep. Now we find ourselves in a dazzling dream like state. Not to worry dear friend, I'll guide you through your path. According to Freud (1915), the unconscious is the most important part of the mind. It's also something we cannot see. Our feelings, motives, and decisions are powerfully influenced by it. Who you are, who you aspire to be, and all the answers you ever wanted can be found here. Let’s take the road less traveled and explore with me. I see a thrilling time is in your near future. Prepare to be amazed.
