Mind, is a capture of what exists in my mind, expressed in a tilted box. In it, there is my puppy Scott, fruits to start the morning, and books I like to immerse myself in. But beyond that, this piece is a spin to what people always say, “think outside the box.” I feel that there needs to be more effort to be introspective, to look inside what goes on in the mind to make rational and right decisions. To express my message, I placed a human making his move inside a brain.
The Future, depicts what I envision our future to be. Don’t be fooled by the smiling faces of the astronauts – it is a disguise for something more serious. With so much pollution created every day, it seems inevitable that we will look beyond life on Earth and find alternative life habitats in space. I depicted the technology that will embark on the search, and placed buds to show that we will eventually find or build habitat we will be able to transition to. So the image depicts at once a dreaded future and a hint of hope.
