I'm sleepy, but not enought to skip this ;)

Okey, this is the representation of the mind of a person who loves reading. That love is represented by the flowers that surround his reading space. He is also surrounded by water that represents reality, we can se how water moves to the sky as the reality starts dissipating and then his mind, represented by the green path, has grown in the infinite sands of imagination, traveling through the universes created by the writters.

About the planets, we can slightly see them, so I suppose he is creating new worlds that aren't finished because they are daydreamings or lucid dreamings; so he jump from one world to another without finishing it.

Just a bit of thinking for your big amount of work, I hope you like it.

Thanks! I had to google that one up, I see it's a game but had never heard of it. It's interesting, and an honor, that many people associate my images with games which I never played or, like in this case, had never even heard before. :-)

Thank you for your kind words. I love how reading makes my mind wander (and wonder) and I tried to depict it a little bit in this series.

Touch one of the spheres to get special powers :D This looks like the kind of place my child self would have dreamed of, it would be cool if someone could make an actual art installation like this on a beach somewhere, with spheres that light up with stars and everything :omg:
