TOBIAS MADISON

Leaning Images 

You do not own your head 

There are so many heads in the world 

Wherever you go there are heads

Every day there are more, sprouting up in the blackness 

At one time there was nothing at all, only blackness. 

And then within the infinite spaces of that blackness, things started to develop.

But as soon as those heads came along, nothing much has happened or nothing worthy of note. 

The whole world reached its peak and turned into an enormous head factory 

Every day there are more and more of them, sprouting up in the blackness, which was there in the beginning. 

The blackness which, perhaps by chance, started to produce all these heads and continues to produce all of them, always calling out for more heads to carry out the business it wants done, its black voice roaring over the infinite black spaces of its head factory. 

But none of the heads has any idea about the blackness that surrounds them, or the blackness that hides itself within each one of them.

- Thomas Ligotti 

 

Workshop Description: 
3 days spent looking at teen images, talking about teen images, hopefully neural rapid fire & hijacking art back for the age of emotional abuse.
