They’re just words, but they’re words that keep me company. And now they’re gone. Both his and his. I feel lonely without those words. I feel loved when I hear his words, and I become cheerful when I read his, and without them I feel bored, and left to my own devices. I’m not sure I’m all that good at being alone. I thought I was, but now I’m wordless and I’m binging. Maybe not on food, like most people, but I’m binging on checking my email, longing for their words, any one of them. I pretty much spend the whole day in waiting. Whatever I do, it’s just something to kill time until their words come. But today, none of them did. And so I keep on binging, this time watching other people live their lives, for hours, hoping to escape mine. Because I don’t know what to do with it, until I have those words.
I am addicted to words, to all of them, but their words have an even stronger effect on me. Other words entertain me, but if they’re not readily available I can move on and look for something else to do. But their words really got me by the balls. If I don’t have their words, that’s it for me or, at the very least, for my day. I’ll probably end up doing nothing worth anything until I get those words. Can you go cold turkey because of words? I can. And why is it words for me, and not people? Sure, the words belong to these people, but I’m never in a relationship with the whole person, it’s always been just me and their words.
Trabalho para a matéria de comunicação visual em moda. Tinhamos que criar algo que servisse como uma página de ambientação para um catálogo de moda imaginário. Eu usei Corel Draw 5 (sim, eu sei. A gente tem que usar o Corel na facul, não o Illustrator) e o trabalho de alguns dos meus artistas preferidos e de mais um que eu ainda não conhecia e descobri aqui no tumblr!
A foto das três mulheres no centro da imagem é de Pierre Molinier, o desenho de fundo é da Louise Bourgeois e as flores são do Man Ray.
Eu achei os retratos sem rosto no tumblr e ainda não consegui encontrar a origem deles.
O poema é da Dorothy Parker. O título é Thought for a Sunshiny Morning e ele pode ser encontrado na coleção de poemas Sunset Gun e também na coleção The Portable Dorothy Parker.
Our assignment was to create something that would serve as a mood-setting page for an imaginary fashion catalogue. I used Corel Draw 5 (yes, I know. We have to use it in my university, no Illustrator allowed) and the work of some of my favorite artists and also one I didn’t know, whose beautiful picture I found right here on tumblr!
The picture of the 3 women (the one I serendipitously discovered on my timeline and served as the inspiration and very first step for the whole work) is by Pierre Molinier, the drawing I stretched sideways and used as my background is by Louise Bourgeois (one of my favorite artists, whose work I’ve been lucky enough to see live twice), and the lillies are by Man Ray.
I found the two portraits with their faces cut off on tumblr and haven’t been able to track them back to the artist yet.
And the poem is by Dorothy Parker. The title is Thought for a Sunshiny Morning and it can be found in her collection of poems entitled “Sunset Gun” and also in the wonderful (and not all that easily portable) “The Portable Dorothy Parker”
My paper toy, travelling ‘round the world…
