"The Place Of The Chapter Before" by island6 Art Collective (Liu Dao)
BLURB
How much does location impact who you are? At home, you might be good and proper, maybe even Confucian. When out with friends, perhaps you are raucous and jokey, not taking too seriously your time or words, not unlike the Daoist sage. In your studio, maybe you’re insatiable with your thirst to create, becoming someone neither your parents nor your friends would recognize. Which is the real you? Of course, they all are. We all swing between these places like seasons, and our personalities do too. It’s tempting to say that you are most yourself when your passion is being fulfilled—like somehow your friends and family are below that, like they wouldn’t understand. And they wouldn’t! You’re a genius, and there’s no way anyone could possibly grasp what’s happening between those waxy ears, is there? No, you’re an island. It can be lonely sometimes, even with all the people. But memories—oh you have memories— they do last. It’s funny how a place can remind us of a certain time, can put us back there as though we never left. Even funnier how people seem to just be echoes of the places they’ve been.
