PROLOGUE: Lately, I've been observing and came to a realization; the current version of humanity have a hard time accepting negativity. Too many polluted quotes on social media and too little leading by action. I personally believe that any traumatic situation must be experienced to it's fullest, and if you ignore it [or choose to], then all your interdependence will be dyed with sorrow and hopelessness. You will then carry those stains for the rest of your days.
It's normal to respond to the natural emotions of loosing your earth. It's normal to cry when you loose a loved one. It's normal to experience a heartbreak warfare. It's very normal to feel angry and ask the appropriate questions.
This trending new-age obstinate pursuit of happiness is clearly leading mankind towards a cliff of dissatisfaction and misery. More specifically to the younger generation. It's almost as if the feeling of being miserable is allowed, but not welcomed. I say embrace your fucking pain! Welcome it with open arms. Talk with it. Explore it. After a comprehensive examination of the facts causing your pain, you will become a new version of yourself like a snake shedding it's skin. And that shit feels good I tell ya!
People choose to put on a inspiring meme-quote on Instagram instead of practicing exactly what they are posting. Ex-liaisons keeping tabs on each other on Facebook even after they moved on with their new bae. Allegedly, of course! Why not just talk and express how miserable you feel and free yourself from your emotional holding? After all, if you can express your happiness to the fullest, then why not the opposite?
We are becoming so banal with current affairs and dealings with our own lives that we think we are capable of solving everything with our head. Which is not the whole truth. I'm not writing this post to give out a solution to your situation. Each individual's situation is different.
But rest assure that your [situation] is real. The cause that triggered your [situation] is a fact. The emotional reaction that you are feeling is live, which makes you alive. It makes you who you are and that is called being a human. Keyword: BEING.
INTROSPECTION: Here is another insert piece shot for my documentary in progress. In fact, this piece also serves as a visual treatment for a premium leather outerwear company. Once again, I have no statement behind it. I just did it. I did what I honestly felt to do. Shadow box. Inspiration? I'm still in the creative rehab stage from watching The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. I'm in it for the past 3 years.
SOUND: I've mentioned this on my previous post. My go to source for music is a dive deep down my state of honesty. For this piece, I was looking something with a rhythm as opposed to my previous piece. I always explore two locales; my childhood memories and my roots. Ilaiyaraaja's music is and always will be my go to source. I think it's also fair to state that any 80's born baby in the Southern part of India will have some blood cells infused with his music. He is the Walter White of music and I'm one of his many bitches. That being said, I picked the opening title track from the film Virumaandi and gave it to my sound buddy to clean and mix it for a thirty second slot. He also added some reversed bass notes for the quotation cards.
