ouaouh - looks like me at 1 or 2 am, sometimes :-)

Chris David Richards said...

Maybe I shouldn't have been thinking about it, but this is very good.

Ande said...

Yes, you are right. the book "Solaris" describes how intellectualism makes it impossible to reach each other and the so called unknown, and that really got me thinking.

Ande - I know of the film, I did not know there was a book -

Jasmine said...

Love the picture. Mother of invention :)

Eva said...

Yes. Thinking is a malfunktion of the brain.

Great picture Sparkey.Yes indeed more Labyrinths and in some cases a little too much thnk ing and your mind starts to unravel like the poor person in your wonderful drawing.

It does look like me at 2 a.m., then 3 a.m. On and on, thinking about all the things I should have done/shouldn't have done. Then finally unraveled I can fall asleep at 4 a.m. Good work!

"Los sueños de la razón preducen monstruos", this post reminds me that sentence in that Goya's drawing. Of course, I totally agree, and the illustration catches perfectly that... too much thinking.

steve said...

I'm all for more labyrinths!

Cláudia said...

Yes! The picture shows exactly how our thinking is inextricably associated to words, to verbal language. We simply cannot think without words and they are so poor to express all we wanted to... a paradox that leaves us to face so many labirinths.!
By the way - English is not my language - hope my words here are not so obscure... but then again, I wonder in which language I could speak clearly about words and mind. Ooops, I guess I'm creating a labirinth here, the best thing to do now is to finish my sentence with something like this: "have a nice Sunday!"

ArtSparker said...

Cláudia- Your comments are always spot on.

Celeste Bergin said...

bravo...everything you do is captivating.

Ande said...

I have never dared to watch to movie because the book was absolute fantastic. It is a lasting piece against intellectualism, and has vivid scenes which stayed with me.
It's a rare thing these days, to be able to write things which is lasting. Thank you

When thinking creates labyrinths, mind is the Minotaur that ought be overpowered & silenced!

Amy C said...

this is such a beautiful and powerful image

Son of Incogneato said...

Lies, light and window. That's what I've managed to extract so far. Dawn? Invention?

Great stuff; I really like the hand, too.

ps - Solaris in book-form is excellent. And there are two films; the Russian version is best, imho.
