Un dosis diario de la mortalidad.

Un dosis diario de la mortalidad.
 Una parte de mi fascinación con muchas civilizaciónes antiguas es su habilidad de integrar la mortalidad en la vida cotidiana. Se ve en sus objetos una manera de tratar con la muerte casi humoristica. Una percepciòn de la muerte sin temor da el beneficio de contemplarla con mas frecuencia. Nuestra falta de tener un modo de expresiòn parecido a nuestros antepasados nos despoja de toda defensa contra lo inevitable.

We are all in this together......or are we?

In what order are the following criteria weighed to qualify someone as a useful and productive human being: family values, work ethic, and money? In how many conversations was this the basis of judgement for an individual? These are very broad terms encompassing so much human activity, thoughts, and actions. These same three things often renew our vigor to continue on battling with the antagonisms of the day. In our internal dialogue we know how we arrange these concepts, but when we are with others, there can be no assurance of a shared conviction. And yet, I have been in many situations in which everyone seemed to be in agreement about these vast ideas, especially when judging another.
Can some individuals actually share these views, or are they constantly shifting these vague ideas to what they think will align them with their desired group?

About Me

Imagination is at the core of all creative acts and comes forth most naturally when one is at play. My goal is to imbue my work with this energy, to animate it or give it a touch of life. A direct interaction with the material, meeting its resistance, is as much a part of its formation as the ideas and influences that motivate its creation.
