  • Thank you, dream catcher

    So I made a dream catcher to keep away all the weird ass dreams I’ve been getting lately, but instead I had an even weirder dream where I was a boy and I had to hide my awkward boner, and it was the worst, because I didn’t know how to and everyone knew. So thank you, dream catcher, for failing to catch that particular dream because I now understand that hiding a hard on is just as difficult as dealing with life during a period. New perspective on life.

    Turkish multimedia artist Erdal Inci experiments with cloned motion in video to create awesomely hypnotic looping videos and gifs of himself moving through public spaces, sometimes carrying lights or other objects. Depending on the exposure, Inci sometimes appears to be no more than a shadow or isn’t visible at all, making his videos even more mysterious and dreamlike.

    He states: “I realized that if you clone a recorded performance contiguously it will become perpetual. So that you can see all the time phases of the same performance in a small amount of time like 1 or 2 seconds. This gives you the chance of thinking like a choreographer with a mass crew or painter who fills its frame not in forms and colour but motion. At this point I could tell I am inspired by patterns in traditional arts & crafts , dance and repetition. Motion, performance and real environments are the outlines of the work.”

    Check out more of Erdal Inci’s mesmerizing video art (and at much higher resolution) over on Vimeo, Facebook or Instagram.

    it’s just
    you said you’d listen to my story
    after you were done on the phone but
    when i came back you asked what was
    “so goddamn important”
    i couldn’t stop nagging you about it
    and since it was something stupid i was just hoping
    would make you laugh so
    i told you to forget about it

    it’s just
    you said you’d read my writing and
    not laugh at it but in reality
    i’ve never stopped being a joke in this family
    because in middle school i wrote dark short stories
    where the main character died and yeah in retrospect
    maybe that’s funny but
    there’s also a reason why since then i don’t
    show you anything because at thirteen hearing you
    refuse to take my work seriously
    didn’t really make me feel like laughing

    it’s just
    you said that school was important but
    at the same time would get so pissed at me
    if i stayed up doing homework
    all i would hear is “why didn’t you start this
    earlier” and when i tried to explain i had other things to do
    i was told “i don’t want to hear it just get it done”
    and when i ever mentioned that i was stressed to the point
    of breaking into glass pieces
    you always rolled your eyes and said “you don’t even
    know what stress is” even though when i asked for help on projects
    you’d barely even look at it before
    deciding it was too difficult

    it’s just
    you’ve never said
    that you’re proud of me
    only told me the things i should be fixing like
    how i’m kind of getting a tummy and my hair is always
    messy and how i’ll never get married if i don’t start
    being more mature and how i need to work on being
    the perfect student or i’ll never amount to anything and
    i need to patch up my personality

    i don’t know but
    when you asked me why i’ve been
    “so distant lately it’s kind of bitchy”
    i got as far as
    “it’s just”
    before you said
    “don’t start with me.”

    i don’t know what you want. i wish i could just
    leave.
