It’s a done deal. Rode on my knees several times. Standing is close, I just know it. Timing the waves well. Stoked. Day two of surfing Long Beach and I am already jonseing to come back, seeing my future & thinking about where I can travel to surf more. I had a feeling. Duge, thank you so much for being the person to share surfing with me! “YES u CAN!” 😊 🌸🌸🌸 This weekend has been a life changer. #nevertoolate #healing #retreat #tofino #yoga #relicsurfshop #surfing #pacificocean #surf #gratitude #miksang #longboard #nofilterneeded @chrisdugganyoga @relicsurfshop (at Long Beach)
When we are first born, we are born with a clear mind, it is society that uploads inscriptions of expectations that cloud our perspectives. These expectations is what drives our desires. We desire what we need to “keep up with the jonses” and if we fail, we are considered being socio-economically inferior. this driving force of what we desire can be productive, it moves us up the socio-econmic chain, it creates popularity. However, these desires can eventually go too far as society continuously corrupts our mind though social media and critical comments until we become trapped in this cycle of desire, wanting more and more of this endless addiction. Society creates so many ideas of perfection that we as humans desire, and change ourselves to reach the ideal perfection. we desire this world of false realities and comforting illusion, and to get there, we change everything that makes us us util we are dehumanised finally to become a mere byproduct of society.
I have used mixed media to create a 3 dimensional spinning poster conveying the development of desires and the radical consequences that can be created. I have used food as a metaphor for many of the different factors which contribute in our so called “success” to gaining a advantage of the ‘Jonses’. I have used polymer clay to create various foods representing, the developing desires toward our diet. The spinning cylinder then moves on to reveal the effects of the damaging foods/desires.
We all desire perfection but how much perfection can we handle?
