Zooming into an intricate mess.

The Garden of Earthly Delights, Hieronymous Bosch.
Been looking into Bosch’s painting. The Garden of Earthly Delights ( 1503 )  is one of his most well known painting. The triptych, which presents four directly related views, The Creation of the World up to the Third Day, Paradise and the creation of Eve, Humankind before the flood and Hell. It’s a super detailed painting with complexity of meaning and vivid imagery. Lots of hidden stuff in it. Pretty similar to Manabu Ikeda’s Ink, you could zoom into it and every section of the painting depict a certain narrative and emotion. You could stare at it for days.
” Bosch is one of the very few painters who – he was indeed more than a painter! – who acquired a magic vision. He saw through the phenomenal world, rendered it transparent, and thus revealed its pristine aspect. ”   Henry Miller, 1957

Here’s some closeup detail to the Triptych. 



Hidden sheet music in located on left corner.
There’s even a hidden actual musical sheet in the painting of Hell. Music and Instruments are major motifs of Bosch, which has been interpreted as symbols of pleasure, lust or  the notoriously naughty habits of travelling minstrels.   “[a] 600-years-old butt song from Hell.” was discovered by Amelia.  butt-song  < click to download music from Hell.


Surrealism // “resolve the previously contradictory conditions of dream and reality” , unnerving, illogical scenes with photographic precision, created strange creatures from everyday objects and developed painting techniques that allowed the  unconscious to express itself.


Work In Progress // I guess somewhat like Bosch painting, I’m modeling the surrealist world with super intricate details in it. and every fragment tells a story to the user mind ( person with the dream/magical realism apparatus/goggles ). The expression of  the fear, happiness, pleasure, anxiety, .. etc.. is captured in the world.

the fragments of adventure, danger….. etc 












The Gravity Shift?

a draft on the fragments of adventure funland. 


Would love to progress on seeing the world grow into a huge intricate mess. Like Manabu’s Ink that grows through time. Not sure where it’ll end up. But it’s worth a try. =)
CY need to take a step back at some point to go deeper into his Narrative, Argument, Vision, Storyboard !! Hopefully will be able to sum-up the project and it’s tittle by the Jury.  AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! Dreams?
