Fantasy World in Real Places

Artist Omer Agam, aka Omerika manipulates pictures by adding a dose of fairy and fantasy. In her collection entitled Whismical, she stages characters and object by miniaturizing them of by incorporating touches of supernatural. A lovely travel in a dreamlike and enchanted world, that could remind everyone who would going there, in his old dreams.

Isn’t it funny that when a woman thinks primarily with her head and not her heart, is tactical and strategic, is a powerful and devoted leader who puts her job before her personal life, she’s demonized and considered manipulative and toxic?

If she was a man with the same attributes, he’d likely be considered brave, selfless, a hero tortured by his unshakable principles.

“Lana has become my friend. She is a musician who is a poet and a video artist. She grew up on the East Coast but she is an artist of the West Coast. When I watch her stuff, when I listen to her stuff, I am reminded of everything I love about Los Angeles. I am sucked into a long gallery of Los Angeles cult figurines, and cult people, up all night like vampires and bikers. The only difference between Lana and me is her haunting voice. That carries everything. The voice is the central axle around which the spokes of everything else extend.  Lana lives in her art, and when she comes down to earth for interviews, it gets messy, because she isn’t made for this earth. She is made to live in the world she creates. She is one who has been so disappointed by life, she had to create her own world. Just let her live in it. “

 - James Franco

When we take responsibility for other people’s emotions and try to keep them happy at all costs, we’re manipulating their emotions. Sometimes, we’re even manipulating their reality: at its extremes, this sort of approach leads people to lie to others, sometimes about major things, in order to keep them from being upset. (Of course, sometimes lying to keep someone from being upset is necessary to keep yourself safe–that’s an abusive situation and not the sort of thing I’m discussing here.)

We often rationalize this sort of behavior by claiming that it’s “for their own good” and that we “just want them to be happy.” More often, though, it’s more for our own good: making people unhappy or upset is painful, and many of us have been taught that if we ever make anyone unhappy or upset, that makes us Bad People. Keeping others happy becomes a way of keeping ourselves happy, or at least keeping that self-hatred under control.
