“Now in the dark world where I dwell, ugly things and surprising things, and sometimes little wondrous things spill out in me constantly and I can count on nothing” – Philip K. Dick.
This piece is part of a collection inspired by the richly imagined, dystopian future worlds of Philip K. Dick, where boundaries are blurred and seemingly contradictory elements fit together seamlessly. Worlds in which nothing is as it seems and we must learn to embrace uncertainty. These pieces embody the inherent juxtaposition of opposites present in our society, futuristic vs. nostalgic, dark vs. light, strength vs. fragility. Modern society is becoming less predictable, it is becoming increasingly difficult to know up from down. This pair were woven out of the same printed warp. Each piece emphasizes the light or dark aspect of the printed design, creating two dramatically different pieces that work together to show the opposing sides of the design.
