Everyone has a 2am and a 2pm personality. I’m more interested in the monster you become at 2am rather than the human being you pretend to be at 2pm.

Can you elaborate on Charles' role within the hinting at Richard's sexuality? I haven't seen a full explanation anywhere, unfortunately.


Well, the way I see it, poor boy Richard is crippled with a huge inferiority complex; in his urge to fit in, in his desperate need for affection, he unconsciously and quickly falls for three people.

It’s just in asexuals are actually have divine properties

Oscar Santillan: Daybreak, visual installation

South American artist Oscar Santillan plays with shadows as his artwork focuses on creating ornate window installation right on the wall of the gallery.

The installation entitled Daybreak is created through a sanding process where the artist sands paint off the wall and uses the powder that falls off to create the floor shadow replica. This technique is not only clever, but it is an extremely simple and effective way to make use of as little material as possible.

His work plays with optical illusions as well as with light, shadows and perspective. The results are beautiful and intricate windows, that would most likely be seen in cathedrals. Just like the way sun and light shines through windows and emanates a shadow, Oscar Santillan effectively accomplishes this with his beautiful pieces
