I’ve always liked the idea of having characters representing a certain emotion, or your inner you. Creepy creatures with creepy features, telling dark stories.
An interesting fact, I think, is when I started this project, back in April, I was in love, for maybe the first time in my life. But it wasn’t pretty. I felt ambivalent about the relentlessness of being in love. The uncertainty of the situation made me insecure at times, but I also felt the intense happiness that goes with love, dopamine, serotine, oxytocin.
It did not work out.
The dark yet wonderful feeling I had was the inspiration of this project. My feelings were all over the place, there was lust, passion, paranoia, I felt blind. These are the feelings that represent the characters, the creatures. They are mine, they will always stay mine as I will always stay mine.
