Esoteric Theories of Flora, Fauna & the Universe
Cash’s digital collage is a unification of familiar human and inhuman images to make something that should be unfamiliar only to bend the sensory journey of the observer back though a surreal cohesiveness into an illusion of familiar like an emotional hallucination from another universe hiding in the crevices of our subconscious. The images he chooses are seamlessly fused together using various techniques and filters. His art empowers him. Every time he creates a piece it’s like he’s solving a problem. It’s a healthy reminder that we can always find solutions even in places where it seems there is none.
The story of how we’ve come to our current understanding of the elements has been long and treacherous. All of the chapters of this story weren’t necessarily fruitful but they all tell us something about ourselves and how we attempt to make sense of our universe.
We have the ability create and build amazing things. This skill set originated from bare necessity but it evolved as our minds developed the desire to create structures that could out last us. The purpose of these structures varies but they all share a commonality - to evoke feelings. As we look at these structures over time they tell us something about ourselves that has become an essential part of the human psyche...
The Ratios of Nature
There is correlation between sound and color that is often overlooked. Everything in the universe has a vibration therefore everything is a wave. You and I are waves with a very small wavelength so we can deduce that sound and visible light, which are obviously waves, would have a connection...
This series metaphorically reflects the counterpoint between the destruction that is an essential part of our world/universe and mankind’s destructive actions. There are calculated efforts to fool the public into believing that these actions are dignified to the point where killing is justified and our destruction of the planet is a birthright.
~ When we think about space the first thoughts are usually inspired by those of our childhood. We didn’t entirely understand what space was but we could still gaze into the night sky - mesmerized by the stars and the moon. As adults, our vision of space has grown much larger but our sense of wonder never weakens...
What does color mean to you? There are more than three million cases of color blindness a year so if you are one of those individuals this word could have a very different meaning and there are approximately thirty nine million documented blind people as well. We often associate colors with emotions. These associations seem common among the vast majority but are these correlations learned or are they a product of a natural understanding of our environment?
Industry, especially with the start of the Industrial Revolution, has been a successful benchmark for society but most people can agree that there is a price that has been paid for this success. Every developmental advancement society makes is almost always followed by issues caused by sociological flaws we’ve held onto since the dawn of civilization. We don’t ever use enough foresight. It’s like we’re blind or maybe we choose to look the other way. Changes aren’t even considered until enough damage is done to justify them.
Esoteric Theories of Flora, Fauna and the Universe
Imagine that there’s a parallel universe that is so rich with energy that it’s bursting at the seams. I believe universes are infinite so the “seam” I’m referring to is not the edge. It’s a membrane, which is a very difficult concept to understand, but I will nevertheless attempt to describe it...
