I think I may have found a way into my subconscious, well I think it may be that. When I draw something very trivial, like cloth, my mind starts to wonder and I start thinking of things that I didn't know I really feel. What I really feel is rather embarrassing and so, as soon as I realize this, my conscious mind suppresses it with logical arguments. I'll call it involuntary thought.

"Every man has some reminiscences which he would not tell to everyone, but only to his friends. He has others which he would not reveal even to his friends, but only to himself, and that in secret. But finally there are still others which a man is even afraid to tell himself, and every decent man has a considerable number of such things stored away. That is, one can even say that the more decent he is, the greater the number of such things in his mind."
- Fyodor Dostoevsky, Notes from the Underground

Sometimes I wonder why I don't see the inside of my eyes when I look out through them. Shouldn't I see the pointed oval silhouettes framing everything I see? Shouldn't I see the tiny blood vessels and nerve endings? For I am just someone trapped inside my own body.

Today someone asked me "Why are you so quiet? You hardly said a word throughout the conversation." Now what on earth do you reply to this? "um... I have nothing to say..."
I thought of the real answer: It is because my psychological role in this particular social group, and in order to sustain the group dynamics, is to be the observer.
(I had to research that by the way)

"...mythological texts spanning many centuries and many cultures (from ancient India to Hollywood) have imagined what the consequences would be if those who wished for a new face were to get what they wished for...And the myths, at least, demonstrates that this is foolish, impossible, or even fatal desire." - Wendy Doniger

In art we were given an art project on a social / political issue.
This is such a cliched theme but I decided to go very subtle and choose a social issue that I can identify with - Angst.
This seems to be a very insignificant issue compared to rape, abortion etc etc but for the people who experience it know how significant it really is.
Anxiety: a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome
Angst can also be linked with existentialism: the term was first attributed to Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard. Kierkegaard used the word Angst to describe a profound and deep-seated condition of insecurity and fear
in the free human being. Where the animal is a slave to its instincts but always conscious in its own actions. [wikipedia]
