Embrace 2014

Embrace by Matt Schultz was by far my favorite playa art last year.

This is the kind of thing I consider to be art. Some of the crazy contraptions that people come up with out there just amaze me.

Yeah it looks sweet for sure. Something out of a science fiction movie.

No clue who it belonged to. Nobody was there when I took the pic and when I came back later, it was gone. The seat inside the large wheel stays stationary while the wheel rolls around it. Very ingenious and impressive, and of course, it shoots fire.

I was really taken aback by what I saw at Embrace. This was inside the top of the brain of the "man" figure or larger figure for lack of a better description. I did a shitty job of trying to create the panorama, but imagining the four walls beginning with the hands at the center the figures flanking them on both the left and right with the imagery throughout.

It wasn't so much the art of what was presented but the symbolism that was offered that struck me so much. This could very well have been my brain throughout many periods of my life. I took it as faith, desperation, hope and suffering things I've felt I've been so close to throughout my life that I almost broke down just absorbing the moment.
