If I could have one thing, it would be to be the best artist I could be. To create to the best of my ability. To make profound and interesting works that titillate the imagination and excite the mind. To create explorative works that pose hard questions with no easy answers. Works that throw the nature of reality and the purpose of existence into question. Works that illustrate new ways of seeing the world, a unique perspective on who we are, and what our purpose is. Works that take you on a journey -into yourself.
The works should be “psychedelics” in the sense that they alter your sense of time, place and self, and show you new meanings in what was previously thought to be fully understood. The works should unlock parts of yourself, showing you a you that you didn’t know existed, or didn’t understand yet. They should be adventures into unknown places, or places of uncertainty. Perhaps a place that is more native to dreams than our waking lives. Perhaps dreaming is our native place. Perhaps in death, we enter our native space.
