Alien Mind Insertion – Tullio – 2016
Filed under ARTology Now
Entropy comes to mind the instance i saw this piece. the order happening to the background leads to the pure insanity of the center-point, and i absolutely love it. the use of an otherwise bright gold is dashed away by the use of such bright and vibrant colors, accented by the oddity of the name perfect copulate a feeling of entropy.
I think this piece out of all of them has a certain “trippy” vibe to it. The black border makes the yellow dots pop out more giving it a more dynamic feel to the piece. The shape reminds me of what you would expect a cell in our body to look like. It looks like a bunch of DNA scrambled into one big clump. I like these kind of pieces, I think they it would be really cool to have a bunch of them hanging on a wall so they could form one bigger shape or picture.
For some reason to me it looked like a jelly fish was trying to enter a brain. The background to me looks like they are in the universe because the gold dots look like stars. Maybe the jellyfish was trying to invade the brain and see what the contents are, or maybe try to see how different they are from each other. I see curiosity all over this, but the more I look at it the more the image seems to change.
The first thing that came to mind here when looking at this piece was Aliens like in the title or some sort of object trying to invade or insert themselves into another thing. All of the yellow dots portray a different type of thing trying to mix in with the rest of the colors but only a few got through so far. The slim black border makes the eye focus on what is going on on the inside more.
I like the name, very cool. Looking at your other pieces, it reminds me of the ones you have made that look like a human brain. Except in this case its the aliens are filling their knowledge with it of course. To me its a very fun piece with a twist on your other artworks. I like the colors and how everything flows. I just hope whosoever brain that is is all right after that kind of insertion, because it does seem like the shape has been distorted.
This piece reminded me of a Chinese dog statue head from the B.C era i can slightly see it with the figure in the center. The color scheme is very cool pointillism on point.
At first glance this reminded me of a horseshoe crab for some reason. There’s a definite alien vibe to this, from the shape to the color. I really like the interwoven parts in the center of the piece. Perhaps that is supposed to be the Alien or its DNA attempting to insert itself into another mind. Either way, this is a visually pleasing piece to me.
“Casting a curious gaze down on planet Earth, extra-terrestrial beings could well be forgiven for assuming that we humans are programmed in every move we make, by a palm-sized, oblong, slab of glass. More perplexing than that, who on earth could convince them otherwise ?”- quote by Alex Morritt from Impromptu Scribe.
I think this piece is quite majestic looking. I love how you were able to illustrate a brain, in your usual style, without losing its shape. When I see a very colorful brain, I think about those pictures that depict the right and left side of the brain. The left side is known to be more analytical and the right side is creative and bursting with color. It’s funny how we perceive intelligence as creativity, simply because you have to be intelligent enough to think out of the box (that we, as humans, created) and do things in an unconventional, creative way. Brain insertion is a complex topic even among humans. By transplanting one human brain into another is considered controversial, a moral matter and unethical. The whole idea of an alien coming and taking over our minds is unimaginable.
One composition choice I would like to point out is the background. The background is probably my favorite part about this whole piece. It just reminds me of a shooting star, a meteor or something coming directly down from space at a fiery speed. The yellow is a flashy color which indicates direction and acceleration. The black part of the background reminds me of the night time. When we think about aliens coming, we always imagine a dark night as opposed to daylight. This simply because we can see things like an alien invasion at night much better. Also, the dark always seems more “mysterious”.
