Dark Matter

Scientifically speaking, Dark Matter, refers to the fact that it does not emit or interact with electromagnetic radiation, such as light, and is thus invisible to the entire electromagnetic spectrum. I feel as if our minds and our consciousness are also a form of dark matter. Only known to ourselves, with all its complexities and mysteries; unavailable for anyone else to see.

Dark matter is a glimpse into the mind. A deciphering of cryptic messages and scenes presented in an automatic drawing style. To (near) completely halt conscious decision making and lose the self into the experience of subconscious creation. This is the darkness finally being able to meet the light.
