Bloggers’ Bliss — See our streetwear come to life

Dimensions

She walks past him every other day
For two and a half years she greets … sometimes pauses for a brief exchange … and carries on going
He sees her walking past every other day
For 30 months he greets, chats … or invites her to meet … yet she always carries on going
He repeatedly opens doors to other dimensions
She smiles yet keeps on moving only on this plane
Like stick-men in black and white they go through the motions
Secretly she yearns for more colour and vibrance, more depth and shape to all of her encounters
Silently he senses they share a yearning and patiently waits for her to accept his invitations

One day, with little warning, she steps through a door, she smiles and joins him … the unexpected delight … he takes her hand and leads her to dance … the lines of her rules fall away and she swims giddy in the sea of potential … he sees her joyful abandon and in fright raises his walls. He does his best to contain her, contain the situation!

With stunned surprise she sees what they have done:
She released her linear dimension … she gave herself over to the lure of colour and vibrance, more depth and shape … yet found herself contained in his single dimension.
His lines and rules firmly in place.
Like stick-men in black and white they go through the motions
With dismay she looks at him, her creator of dimensions …
… revealed as deleter of dimensions …

And gently it dawns on her …
… she must create her own world of colour and vibrance … more depth and shape … release the lines and rules …
… so that she can swim giddy in the sea of potential …
… be the creator of her own dimensions …

Artist's Description

inspired by the perpetual human dynamic … like a pendulum swinging between extremes … between the grip of fear and the release of love … it is all around, in every single interaction
