Agh!

Well, at least now I know what I will be dreaming about tonight.

If you ever want to be an "X-Files" style serial killer, we have your deal... you can ONLY be seen in reflections.

Re: Agh!

I hope they are pleasant dreams or at least pleasantly scary ones . . .

The great thing about the "ONLY seen in reflections" idea is that it's true for all of us that we can only see our whole selves in reflections. It's only odd for others to not be able to see us directly.

Re: Agh!

I have heard it said that one of the characteristics of a monster is that it cannot see its own reflection. I think it must be reference to being unable to see one's self as others do. In Medieval Europe they (allegedly) killed witches, burned them, and buried the ashes in a mirrored box. Creepy!

Panopticon, etc...

Re: Agh!

Yes, that makes a lot of sense. Thanks to Facebook, the number of witches is in steep decline.

I hope that's a good thing! Seriously, I was going for semi-goth, but not wholly over-the-top scary. . .

Thanks for your comment, BTW. I appreciate it.

That is creepy as hell. You must scare your poor daughter all the time. ;)

Luckily, that is not the case. She's enough of an artist -- and exposed to enough art, including her mom's less disturbing work -- that she can distance herself from most things that creep people out. There are exceptions, which prey on her mind. I think, though, that she would be OK with this.

You're always finding freakish ways to make images. I'm still surprised at time, though. :-)
