1. A combining form denoting all, every, everywhere; as in omnipotent, all-powerful, omnipresent, omnivorous.
1. Something apparently seen but having no physical reality; a phantom or an apparition
2. An illusory mental image
3. In Platonic philosophy; objective reality as perceived and distorted by the five senses.
This project is meant to be consumed with your emotions, and not simply perceived with your sense organs. I wanted a transcendental meaning behind them, not only with the use of chromatics and aesthetics. But with my intended focus being on the philosophical theories, I wanted a “subliminal composition” to create an undertow of messages to stress the strong influences of unconscious elements affecting and driving people's lives. With the creation of a strong undercurrent of incommunicable thoughts, this will be the stage for illuminating the subconscious intellect into absolute perception.
The visual aesthetics are purely symbolic in their thought, application, and structure; with decomposing forests of broken memory, connections, and tumbling of vertigo into the correct positions of phenomenal reality. The shallowness of the area above the horizon line indicates the division of the limited amount of information consciously perceivable (atmosphere-above) and the larger mass storage of all the sense information, rationalizations,and prejudices of the subconscious below (hydrosphere-below). The nexus of contingents between drowning and floating, falling and flying, dying and living are some of the main unphysical-intangible themes in this series.
What you can perceive and process is an extremely finite portion of what you receive from the physical environment.

When the subconscious floods pass society’s imprisonment, starting a process of uncontaminated awareness, a penetrating understanding will unfold! Read Less
