About this piece:
An exploration of some of the various important motifs found in the artist’s very active dream life: Tsunami or Flood appears at times of incredible emotional upheaval -- Wolf in its many aspects; wild, ferocious, loyal, either stalking or protecting, an appeal to the instinct -- Meteor comes crashing down signalling ‘the sky is falling’ -- Shadow, all that the ego rejects and yet is a reflection of, comes personified when our own darkness threatens to overwhelm -- Wild Man, in his terrible grandeur, pierces with brown-eyed gaze straight into the latent soul, an invitation to initiation... and of course -- Shit is abundant when we’re occupied with the worst things in life. It is through working this very shit that we might find our gold, our glory.

Despite my reverence for these mythological archetypes alive within me, and despite how seriously I often take myself, dreams have helped me embrace my own absurdity and that of the human condition. I can claim with joy:

In my slumber, I’m afraid to poop… In my waking, I am the Shit King.

About this artist:
Visual Amalgamist | Philosopher Hobbit | Oneiric Wanderer

After graduating BFA in Digital Media from Otis College, Casey pulled a stint as one-third of the directing collective ‘Three Legged Legs’, leaving a humble body of audio-visual madness in his wake. After its dissolution, an extended sabbatical led to co-founding the radical indie dev space ‘Glitch City’. Recently, he has contributed Narrative & World Building / Level Design / Miscellaneous Artistry to the award winning Kickstarted Indie Game: ‘Hyper Light Drifter’.

Casey is interested in the creation and enrichment of meaningful culture. To that end, he has been exploring the power of story and mythology, while also actively engaging with Depth Psychology, Jungian Analysis, and Dreamwork.

He’s an avid letter writer, and is often found not wearing shoes.
