So thats why!

Have realized that i've grown mildly obsessed with Root formations and plant growth in general. Maybe its the upward movement or something, or how creepy it becomes. Plus When you look closely branching systems tie all of biology together. It doesn't matter if its the blood vessels in your arm or the whatever that holds jellyfish together. Even thought processes work through branching, starting at a central point and growing out to make quick connections with other vital tidbits of information.  Its not actually creepy at all, but beautiful and comforting. Comforting that even if one isn't religious there are still these underlying ties that hold everything together, a system of existence!

  1. I love your little obsessions. Let me think: first (when it Net you) It was cupcakes, then owls, then tattoo ideas and gramophones and such things, Chandeliers, Octopi, Jellyfish, Cuttlefish (babies)... and now root systems. I can totally see you as a working artist, incorportaing all of these mini-obsessions into your work (as you pretty much do now but rather in the future perhaps making them mini themes). "tom-aa-to", "tomayto", obsession, inspiration... you fascinate me and inspire me dear!
