This is the place between reality and dream. There are distant thoughts of familiar objects, sounds, and voices. These facets are fragmented and distorted-- you hold onto these illogical oddities because they remind you of a familiar reality. But here, they are displaced. Nothing’s dangerous here, but you are a visitor, so things might feel dangerous to you. None of this tangibly exists, but it may feel real because you can’t distinguish a memory from a dream. Nothing is permanent here, and nothing is serious. You are in a space that is far more realistic than reality itself.

Asked: Can you describe the time when you first realized that creating was something you absolutely had to do?

Answer: The moment I stopped taking art classes, I noticed myself finding excuses to paint or draw. I would paint pieces for birthdays and special occasions, I would have friends pose for me for fun, I would find any excuse to create. That’s when I first realized that throwing myself into creative projects is mandatory.
