Life In The Subconscious Mind
Come enter my dream world...

realm`One kicking a freestyle from the mind for depthCORE 25.

The inspiration of this piece came from further study of one of my favorite
artists ever, Salvador Dali. I just had to experiment with his old style
and incorporate it with my own graffiti and 3D works.

This piece was probably one of my most debated pieces in
depthCORE mpanel, many disliked it, many liked it. I guess it all
depends how you want to approach it.


The main theme of this piece is to engage the viewer into the human
subconscious mind, which is the key to surrealism, to warp the viewer into
a world in which they are familiar, yet unfamiliar with, aka the subconscious mind.

The place where I wanted to lead the viewer in this piece is the subconscious mind
of myself as an artist. That is the reason why I used simple geometric shapes on the
floor, not because i'm lazy to model or lazy to make something fancy, but It's because
in my subconscious mind, these simple geometric shapes symbolize my state
as an artist.

Well, I think you would either appreciate and enjoy this piece or the
exact opposite, think it's crappy and lack a lot. Enjoy!

I really like this piece a lot! Really caught my eye going through my watched stuff, and I thought it was a sort of sky-falling-square-pieces scene with the desert, some pyramids, and palm trees. But upon looking at it in full, I found, to my surprise, it wasn't that at all. It was even better! And as for capturing the style of Dali, I'd say his moustache would be pleased with this. :3 Favoriting~

Wow, really unique work. I find it visually very confronting because the stark difference in detail and richness between the top and bottom half (which you've described).

My eye starts at the top and is greeted with detail and texture, then it drifts down and is smacked by the sparseness of a 1980's video game. It's a little disturbing because it seems to hint that there's "not much going on" in the subconscious. Maybe our SC really just controls our involuntary bodily functions (breathing, heartbeat) and doesn't get involved with any higher concepts at all?

The way the sky (normally vast and expansive) is also represented on a wall also really closes the image down, to me communicating a trapped and constrictive concept.

Definitely impressive work, certainly caused a reaction with me when I saw it. I will fav it on those grounds alone :)
