BLURB

I had dealt with patients with the most interesting mental disorders ever since I was a clinical psychologist. Schizophrenic and sociopathic people walked in, pretending they had no problem at all. Wannabe psychologists knocked on my door, just to take the Rorschach test out of curiosity. There was one patient of mine, however, a young medical student who found that the scores, and my interpretation surprisingly matched her personality. My interpretation! She came back and we started to draw for each other every Saturday, rather inaccurately appropriating the tools of Hermann Rorschach's inkblot test. We bought ink together and spent hours and hours painting the most abstract, meaningless and ambiguous shapes. After we ran out of paper, we splashed ink on the walls of my office with our eyes closed. We saw dancing crocodiles and Santa Claus even in our dreams. We went outside in the evening to spray scribbles everywhere, which were, from a pure non-scientific perspective, the most disordered portraits of both of us. We changed science to art. Needless to say, the police didn’t think so. “What were your motivations?” they asked. We gave the most obvious of answers: you’ll find everything you want to know somewhere splashed among all that ink. [Andras Gal]
