day dreamin

2012 ArtPrize Entry

I can't help being drawn to a humorous subject and an absurd one even more so. When I can’t find the right image in the real world, I’ll try to create one and 'Day Dreamin' would be one of my humorously absurd moments. We all imagine our lives differently, what could have been, what should have been or what we might be. In sleep, we’re helpless and we go where we must, while in day dreams, we’re the architects of our imaginary world. As for me, it’s always seemed pretty arrogant to think that we alone should be blessed with the ability to create an alternate reality for ourselves. Other creatures may share the gift of day dreaming and if so, what of fish? Where would their day dreams take them?
