I haven't updated in months. It's decided that I'm not returning to my current university in the fall. That's all I'll been saying on that…for now. My coping mechanisms and passions have been solid but also shifting ever so slightly in directions, directions that I'm liking. I still haven't done painting since January, however, my passions have been shifting towards sculpture and installation art, along with film. In particular, 35mm film. I'm thinking of doing film, like movies. I'm finding myself more attached to materials and the process of working with them, which is why I'm starting to find myself again in those mediums: sculpture and installation art. Perhaps it's also the physicality. The physicality of things, brutality of the universe. (These things have been said before, but I would like to say them again..)

What started as a coping mechanism to deal with my depression and deepening winter despair has started to manifest itself as a passion and something I'd like to pursue further. I would buy movies on iTunes to watch to make me feel better but also to help me deal with my feelings and identify with certain things within my life and within myself. I'm thinking of pursuing film further, perhaps I'll find myself as a filmmaker someday. I'd like to create bizarre narratives with characters with bizarre and unusual habits inside strange and disturbing worlds. Worlds inhabited with feelings of depression, despair, fatigue, paranoia, dread, and phobia. Among others.

Shout out to Darren Aronofsky, Roman Polanski, Harmony Korine, John Carpenter, David Lynch..

Lately I have felt very mute, very unable to communicate with others. So I've been communicating through my art.

Ephemeral Study
 Preserved moss


59.69 cm x 8.636 cm


Dealing with ephemeral materials. Because like human beings, everything is ephemeral. We all rot and go away in the end. Our particles may be restored, but they may come a time when we and everything as we know it is lost.

This existence might not be real. And time itself might not be real. But the electrical signals in my brain and the particles in motion, and all the matter that encompasses my sense of touch…has to be real. And these orgasms and kisses and the blood that pours out of my veins…has to be real. And cum, glass, steel, and all the metals that have forged my soul…have to be real, and they all have to be able to be felt with my heart and mind. My mind has to be real.

I'll see that time heals this, and everything in the end, when everything all comes to a close. My current existence is one of a loner or a recluse, at least it feels that way. But I don't have to stay that way, as much as it is romanticized, or as much as I romanticize it.
