The Dimensions of Pleasure
As our projected field of vision enters the brain, we respond in some rather peculiar ways. We get pleasure from certain things and seem to extract that pleasure from the unusual or altered experience of our perceived world. This can be achieved through art. By expressing the unlikely, we begin a journey into the depths of the imagination.
What’s thrilling is the experience of envisioning complex arrangements of minute particles that make up our world and our connection with them. It’s fascinating to think that we could all be made up of similar matter. In some universal way, we can relate to such arrangements that are expressed creatively. They don’t seem to make sense at first, but our human curiosity deciphers them, producing an emotional experience—like music to the ear.
Perhaps if you were a living thing from another planet, you’d see things quite differently. Maybe you’d perceive time to be so fast that humans looked like stone figures? Your view on reality, you would think, would be so much different. Imagine if you could somehow interpret it. ‘The Dimensions of Pleasure’ is stirred by this thought.
The photographs I took for this piece are actually taken from two of my favorite places back home. I used these shots, which are taken from natural landscapes, and brought them into a digital platform where I could express my point of view—imagination can be a pleasurable experience. Through art, maybe we can achieve positive mental states by exploring alternative pathways…
A Little About Me
My name’s Todd, people call me Wobby and I’ve stumbled upon the pseudonym ‘Wobby Derche’. Throughout my life I’ve met some fascinating people and they teach me something new everyday. Travelling and keeping on the move has opened my eyes and directed me. I now reside in Sydney, which I find an inspiring and creative city. When I design, I hope to communicate something interesting and personal.
