Six Slices of Psychedelic Synesthesia: “The spirits are about to speak!” “Are they friendly spirits?” “I dunno, just listen.”

Ahhh… Rocky and Bullwinkle. A brilliant parody of everything going on in the world at the time. A forerunner to the Simpsons and other “adult” animated series. Why am I thinking about Rocky and Bullwinkle? I don’t know. But I am. Anyway, while I could go on and on in a dissertation about the genius of said Moose and Squirrel, I will press on to the real meat of this post… the visuals, the images, the art.

Again, as with the earlier post called “Pairs”, this is work from the last blast session. But instead of the full frame pictures that I have, for the most part worked with, these works are somewhat smaller and built off of small slices of the larger works. Art within art so to speak. Or in the case of this stuff, worlds within worlds.

And it really is that way to me. Especially in this new way of working with the random blast results. These pieces, all of these pieces, have always seemed to reveal a multitude of totemic imagery from symbols to figures to faces. Now, this may be a case of the Freudian inkblot kind of thing, where what you see in these is really guided by your own subconscious and the layers and layers of imagery buried and in play inside that. I may see what I want to see. Or maybe not. Perhaps it is something more than that. Perhaps, fueled by the random chance of the processes of creating these, I am inviting the co-creator into the work and maybe, just maybe, the co-creative is revealing itself through those various sub images in the work. Heady stuff. But I’ll save the further exploration of that idea for a future time.

For now, let us dive into these new slices of psychedelic gooeyness…  Yes, things are still quite psychedelic and trippy, fuel for psychonauts, truth seekers, meditation and of course, other interior pursuits. Where you go with these is up to you. Some will see nothing more than pretty colors, some will see ancient mystical symbols and faces, and some will see boring, sloppy “art”. And all of those are completely valid and okay. The only thing that truly interests me is “What do YOU see?”

And as far as “synesthesia” goes, I think there’s certainly the chance for some of that. Triggering the other senses, specifically the “sixth” sense, is something that has been noted by some viewers of this work. Stronger in some pieces that others. Stronger in some people more so than others. I find that utterly fascinating and a tribute to the co-creative force or energy at work in these. Jung felt randomness was a way to access higher levels of consciousness, and perhaps these are visualizations of that. Or, perhaps they are not. You decide. But, please tell me when you do. I’m terribly interested to know what you see and feel.

But enough philosophy and jibber jabber…. let’s get visual…
