your world beginning | there’s never a dream i need to follow

there is never a dream i want to follow

a darkness

ahead; and a winter’s cold night …

there’s never a dream i need to follow,

motivational speakers

coaching seminars

life plans and aspirations

girlfriends or promises …

there’s never a dream i need to be

your world beginning | interstellar: the gravity of love

interstellar the gravity of love

One of the more compelling elements of the film Interstellar is the idea of love transcending both time and space; the ghost that haunts our perception, memories and longings is the love that is ever-present. I felt a very strong connection to this moment in the film as the multidimensional visual construct envelopes the theme of love; emerging from the shadows making it wondrous and transparent. In my own interpretation of this moment I try to bring together the expanse of space, the linear elements of multiple dimensions, and the shadows of perception. One layer in the image contains elements from the piece “In a Place of Subtle Things”(see the post prior to this series). This layer, with its figurative self portraits being immersed in the shadows, represent a somewhat ambiguous connection. And unlike our connection to our one true love or the many loves of an eternal lifetime, they at times seem to remain just beyond our reach. But as the film proposes, love can exist for the duration of timelessness, simultaneously in the past, present, and future.

Like a beautiful diamond that will last forever.

your world beginning | to the distant fir tree

to the distant fir tree

toward a place of subtle things
through fallen leaves
and barren trees
with maps and moments
along the mountain ridge …


your world beginning | we could die together being in love with this moment

we could die being in love with this moment

every place has its own beauty
its own moment and place in time
in which we can disappear
or begin again ….


your world beginning | we could live forever chasing this feeling

we could live forever chasing this feeling

as things evolve in fragments,
blown by the winter wind
in the gray and distant place
deep within this conversation
– with self
and anyone who will listen … being so far away

we could live forever, chasing this feeling

*****************************************************************************************************************
The fourth short film in the “Your World Beginning” series, again explores the connection between our relationship with our memories, dreams, and everyday life. The series is my attempt to delve deeper into those moments when we are living through the patterns of life that we have created for ourselves, while simultaneously feeling the ambiguity and lightness of our dreams and aspirations.

In composing the music, I am using sound samples to create a layered sonic ambience, with hints of melody and tonality. In the series, organic sounds and industrial technological sounds merge to create dreamlike structures to enrich the imagination and supplement the visual composition.


your world beginning | a place to find inner peace

a place to find inner peace

My latest series entitled “Your World Beginning” searches for found beauty. A beauty, that when discovered, gives the inner soul a place for stillness and rejuvenation.

Things for me in recent months, had been pretty dark emotionally. Artistically I tried to work through my angst in a cathartic way via my previous series “Your World Disappearing”. I am now ready to accept the fate that was handed to me and move on. Years ago, in my process of finding a sustainable recovery, I discovered that physical immersion into landscapes of beauty, moments of solitude, and personal accountability through action would provide the first of four significant paths to peace. This new series is a visual reflection of the desire for discovery and the emancipating steps to take me there.

The mountains have always been a place where I could venture to and find a place of inner peace.
