—because this book is, itself, a work of art. Every picture, every line, every element: all adhere to my intent. Every nonsense, every odd sentence, every strange prose: a cry for help.
Yet, this is the best "art+literature" book in existence. No artist in history has ever done this. A collection of thoughts that'll compel your heart to experience feelings beyond what's explicable.
Each line of prose is accompanied by an artwork to make an "ekphrastic" connection of meanings. This book uses literature and imagery to question human existence, complex emotions, philosophies, and systems of power. The goal is to highlight the role of hope, dreams, love, magic, and storytelling. It is a museum of melancholia, nostalgia, "home" sickness, escapism, and post-internet blues. A soft compilation of thoughts that are meant to ring out like spells to console anyone who wants to experience a glimpse of disappearance. A book that pulls you into healing waters. My personal attempt to translate some untranslatable emotions by a communion between visual art and lyrical writing. Pages with dispelling nature against bad vibes.
ALL written thoughts and artworks are made by me. Again, this is the best "artlit" book in existence. The artist who can surpass the kind of work I put together in this book hasn't been born.
NOTE: This is the official SOFTCOVER ebook version. The HARDCOVER ebook version was a time-limited edition, and has been discontinued forever (unless 0bama asks for it). Congrats and thanks to everyone who got a copy. This version is NOT FREE ANYMORE. I need to fund my local exhibits and my personal greed, sorry.
a PDF file in full colours, each piece in super high-resolution you wouldn't even believe.
