living the dream

Dreams: a psychological space where overwhelming, contradictory, or highly complex notions can be brought together by the dreaming ego, notions that would be unsettling while awake, serving the need for psychological balance and equilibrium.

Freedom alone – I’m hiding the pain of my art

in a heartbeat of days.

If You search,

You will spend all your seconds in vain –

I can not be suspended in a quiet hour,

Innocently pretend to wear

The fluttering wings of inner peace.

I can not, no matter how I fly.

My heart’s sighs, my eyes’ tears ,

reveal the secret misery of galloping horses.
It hurts the soul too, eventually.

My freedom has been stolen!
Ah, Everything is  research

Stage 5 of Sleep: This stage is known as rapid eye movement (REM). Breathing becomes more rapid, irregular, and shallow, eyes jerk rapidly in various directions, and limb muscles become temporarily paralyzed. Heart rate increases, blood pressure rises, and males develop penile erections. When people awaken during REM sleep, they often describe bizarre and illogical tales. These are dreams. This stage accounts for 20 to 25 percent of total sleep time.

Report on General Relation to Dreams, Soul, and Stunning Variety

– grow into the Depths, a multitude of octopuses;
The roots of the contradiction that sing

till the heart churns as it bleeds creativity.
Finds the ways and themes between this space in the hero’s death –
I’m relevant!

Psychology – a raven with burning wings that wakes people’s eyes and shadows by calling the sky.                                                                                                   

Angry children, whose sleep confirmed their separation, were Indigo and witnessed the rising animal spirit.
More metamorphoses than ghost totems –
when the shadows are angry.
Check out the complexity of the concept,
horrible mattress between wallpaper and a chain of sighs.

In contrast to modern views, the basic assumption had been that underlying perceptual symbol systems: Subsets of perceptual states in sensory-motor systems are extracted and stored in long-term memory to function as symbols. As a result, the internal structure of these symbols is modal, and they are analogically related to the perceptual states that produced them. –Source 

Frenetico Ritmo –

nervous legs dance in a dream, like passionate horses.


the entertainer behind the screen

Pay no attention to the figure behind the screen. H. P. Lovecraft’s visit to that New York hot spot, Club R’lyeh, left him ill at ease. It was the jazz music & musicians,  that unsettled him.


Harlem Flat Blues (1929) Duke Elington’s Jungle Band


Oriental Illusions (Oriental Nightmare) Slim Lamar & His Southerners

effiel see you now

Knowing the best words is hard – it takes a natural artist, a real genius.

The King of Insomnia -

is a superhero,

 one that intervenes in the lives of people

 who suffer

 from lack of sleep and nocturnal anxieties.
the King of Insomnia, originally inhabited Rio de Janeiro’s streetscape

I later decided that the King of Insomnia wouldn’t be alone. He’s part of a culture, with family and others like him. That was also influenced by my trip to Europe. I was there during an influx of immigration, and I thought about how all human beings at some point need to move to another part of the world, be it for war, ambitions, or personal dissatisfaction. The mystery of these connections, the mixing of people and of migration is what made me decide to take the aesthetics of the King and, from him, create an entire people from Insomnia, a culture made up of characters. – Tomaz Viana

Tomaz Viana, working under the name Toz, is a graffiti and multimedia artist originally from Salvador, Bahia. Currently based in Rio de Janeiro, he develops work that appears both on the streets and in museums and galleries, where it stretches the limits of traditional art spaces with exhibitions that immerse the viewer in interactive visual narratives.

Viana’s street art is playful and whimsical, as well as unusual. His figures—which have continuity in personality and attitude as much as physical form—inhabit and interact with the sites where they are painted. One such figure, the King of Insomnia, originally inhabited Rio de Janeiro’s streetscape but recently began occupying museum galleries.

Asemic Snapshot 28

In the good old summertime

In the good old summertime

Strolling through a shady lane

With your baby mine

You hold her hand and she holds yours

And that’s a very good sign

That she’s your tootsey-wootsey

In the good, old summertime

“In the Good Old Summer Time” is an American Tin Pan Alley song first published in 1902 with music by George Evans and lyrics by Ren Shields.
