Completely unedited notes taken over the course of my day:

●Beginning at 9:30am
●Still feeling fairly sick at 10:49am
●Brief moment of clarity after dancing around the room like a horny soccor mom listening to Lana Del Ray: 11:01am
●Wishing the sun would come back: 11:02am
●Reasons why I should not be a Mother: The only time I desired to be a mother was while tripping on acid. 11:05am
●Try not to cry to Blue Jeans at 11:09am
●Tie dye dress is best dress at 11:11am
●Feels like I could sleep or dance, could go either way right now. Sick tummy is back tho. 11:13am
●Getting from back yard to my desk is epic journey rewarded with my great taste in music 11:17am
●Seeing sparkles. Keep drawing 11:27am. Feeling less sick. Better to stay sitting for now.
●Importance of a good music mix
●Handy to have crayons. Buy more crayons 11:43am
●Unreasonable amount of joy at getting blue and indigo crayon parts back to their counterparts 11:55am
●Thinking about ways I will describe the insane emotions I’m feeling and then remembering that I’ve just been sitting playing with crayons 11:58am
●SHARK RELATED THINGS ARE HAPPENING. SHARK THING. PICTURE AND SONG THIS MIGHT BE IMPORTANT
●Go back and listen to Alt J later. See if all those sounds were always there and I just never heard them or if I was super tripping. Tessellation 12:03pm
●laid down on the grass for a while, when I looked at the impressions on my arm it looked like I had two skins, one moved beneath the other. It was living 12:11pm
●looked at myself in the mirror. Second skin was there 12:13pm
●don’t look in the mirror again! Bad vibes! 12:16pm
●Knowing the length of certain songs gives me my only perception of time 12:19pm
●Sparkles becoming black and brown spots 12:19pm
●It’s hard to focus on one particular thing right now. All the shapes are breathing. Second skin is still there 12:21pm
●I don’t care if I look fat in this tie dye thing, I feel so pretty in it. 12:25pm
●This is a good safe place. This house 12:26pm
●Touched the earth. Intense
●Snapchat notifies people when you screencap their msg. Hmm. 12:30
●Physically experiencing things now, like genuine sensation that is very confusing and also exciting 12:31
●I am very confused by time amd also that the sun keeps going away 12:41pm
●I should take up yoga or something 12:43pm
●Spent way too long on imgur 13:08
●Tried to eat mac n cheese but it was terrible. Talked to Dom for a bit. 13:29
●It’s been FOUR HOURS since I dropped?! 13:30
●Bigger gaps of time now. 13:47pm
●Always worried about how I look. On acid I don’t feel so worried. It’s nice 13:49
●In my day to day life I never allow myself the ‘lightness’, physically and mentally, that I feel on acid. The playfulness. The rejection of my shape. 13:51
●There has been a reoccurring thought that my feet actually look like grey alien feet. 14:06
●When I closed my eyes I saw fractals and colours so intensly. Spirals turn, colour so warm the world looked grey when I opened my eyes again 14:11
●If I have learnt anything it’s that I need more tie dyed poncho dresses in my wardrobe 14:16
●Film: ‘to-do list’

cross-connect:

Graziano Locatelli is an Italian artist working with mixed media and creating artworks from ready made materials like tiles.

I started assembling small tiles of aluminium that I cut from larger foils, I painted and put them together to produce works that would later represent the main structure of my current production. My early works are sharp and are often torn apart by heads and figures that try and break the wall and is still the subject of the breakage that bewitches me. 
After a few attempts at mixing cement, glue and tiles, I created a copious body of works that revolves around the theme of abandoned places. I wonder what meanings and feelings these (once) familiar places arouse in those who lived there. I see them as restless dreams, spaces in ruins inhabited by ghosts that still retain an embryonic life.

Silhouettes II

__________

idols over the years aka pale ladies with dark hair and dark clothes ftw

// me and my sister were playing guessing game with our favourite characters and i realized that mine are mostly bw goth-ish looking, so i started sketching just because why not and suddenly there was more and more of them
those signs don’t make much sence, it just felt like something should be written there, but writing just names seemed silly, so, eh…
