Quote reblogged from Blackest Despondency with 27 notes

If we continue these considerations to the bitter end, then the conclusion is not in doubt. As long as humankind recklessly proceeds in the fateful delusion of being biologically fated for triumph, nothing essential will change.

This series of work is the culmination of several years, in which time I have refines the core idea’s behind my work, this being an understanding of a sublime that’s vastness isn’t created in the openness of a space (like in the work of Casper David Friedrich) but rather, is created in the obscuring of space from the viewer be it fog, darkness or a “veil of trees” so that the spaces vastness exists in the uncertainty of the spaces boundaries. The base of my research and the reason the forest is my current motif is because of Gaston Bachelard’s “Poetics Of Space” In it he explores how we experience spaces, focusing on archetype spaces, the forest being one of these. It is Kant’s and Burkes ideas and writing that has most affected my work and defined my understanding of the sublime. I also believe that Freud’s uncanny has relevance and is linked with the sublime. .

Quote reblogged from An Existential Life with 9,081 notes

If you know someone who’s depressed, please resolve never to ask them why. Depression isn’t a straightforward response to a bad situation; depression just is, like the weather.

Try to understand the blackness, lethargy, hopelessness, and loneliness they’re going through. Be there for them when they come through the other side. It’s hard to be a friend to someone who’s depressed, but it is one of the kindest, noblest, and best things you will ever do.

— Stephen Fry (via wordsnquotes)
