Spiraling the tip of time to the end of decimals: THE MOVIEThe Dream PoliceSpiraling Scorpion's Tail of Time
The Dream Police
Previous Image | Next Image
Description: A homage to William S. Burroughs http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_S._Burroughs and his brilliant book "Naked Lunch" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naked_Lunch , a book that has been a great inspiration to me all my life...

"During the bienal Panics when the raw, pealed Dream Police storm the City, the Mugwamps take refuge in the deepest crevices of the wall sealing themselves in day cubicles and remain for weeks in biostasis. In those days of gray terror the Reptiles dart about faster and faster, scream past each other at supersonic speed, their flexible sculls flapping in black winds of insect agony."

…also a homage to Gary Numan / Tubeway Army and the song "The Dream Police" inspired by Burroughs book.
Listen to it while viewing my image!: <a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/ntt1KaKJdxM&rel=1&fs=1&hd=1" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/v/ntt1KaKJdxM&rel=1&fs=1&hd=1</a>
Actually I think the whole album "Tubeway Army" suits this works atmosphere perfectly… I listened to it while creating this artwork.

I liked The Pleasure Principle but I was beginning to move into other areas by then.  Talented bloke though!

Absolutely!  As soon as I first heard Are Friends Electric, I was absolutely gobsmacked and had to buy Replicas.  After that, I bought the first album and some of the old singles (That's Too Bad, Blue Eyes etc.)  It was via TA that I discovered Ultravox - one of my favourite bands.  Although I became a hippie and got more into prog, psychedelia etc., these are bands I will always remember and still love listening to.

Thank you Erisian!  A Beer Cup
We seem to share the same history in music, glad to hear that.
It was a new kind of music back then...

smiley "maestro... " No problem mauxuam, it is just that I wanted to know what you didn't like, and you gave me a very clear explanation of what you meant, I like that.

So... cheers to the real maestro: mr Burroughs!  A Beer Cup afro

sorry for not being substantial an articulated in my critique from the start

off course I did it with all the respect to a maestro like u
I am just a beginner in the mandelbulb universe   embarrass

WB is a big inspiration for me too...and I actually admire his life even more than his art

Now, that is a more substantial critique maux!
And I can see what you mean, I usually have more settled backgrounds but this time I wanted to create a feeling of the scary, hallucinated, poisoned atmosphere from the book.
But, as you say, we all have different taste. I Thank you for elaborating on what you felt!
Nice to hear you like Burroughs! (What I meant about asking if you had read him was that his books are a bitt "too much" sometimes in some context)  A Beer Cup

I did
I read the books and I listen to the poetry
and i enjoyed the music collaborations with Bill Laswell too.

I like the fractal elements in this one
but for me there is too much emphasis in the background and the montage
always matter of taste
for example I never liked Gary Newman or Ultravox smiley
