Watery, abstract beginnings guide us to the dark and squelchy dwelling place of a man who is caught inside an octopus’ tentacle. Deciding to make an escape, a strange odyssey ensues through dream-like surroundings and encounters, leading to the emergence of something ominous.

Cactus Ed Takes Flight (A Reincarnation of consciousness)
giclee digital prints, 60x50cm
Nomas* Projects, Dundee, 2018
with writing by Aaron B. Casey
This here highfalutin specimen of desert literature, known here forth as Cactus Ed Takes Flight (a Re-incarnation in Consciousness), was inspired by the legendary desert rat, desert anarchist and desert sage, Edward Abbey (Cactus Ed), whose writings, musings and ramblings constitute some of the finest desert literature of the post-bellum era.
Cactus Ed Takes Flight (a Re-incarnation in Consciousness) is adapted from the as yet unpublished novel This Land Will Eat a Man Alive by Aaron B. Casey. I like the idea of the turkey vulture being able to soar into outer space, perhaps as an omniscient observer, able to see the forest for the trees. Our species’ myopic destruction of the planet as well as our anthropocentric world view must be checked. We need to look at the Bigger Picture and perhaps lift our gaze beyond cityscape, feed lot, steel tower and screen. To reconsider our current endeavor towards self-destruction and ecological omnicide. We need to learn, in the words of Aldo Leopold, to think like a mountain.

A woman tells of a hallucination of giant waterfalls in a sparse desert canyon. Amongst waking visions and primordial landscapes, a mysterious pink rock is found travelling through time. It slowly creaks and cracks in the darkness, un-dead. You reach out for it, or has it already reached out for you? A long forgotten amateur geologist reads from his ragged-edged notes. He tells of cryptic rocks and landscapes, with mysteries yet unsolved. As he unravels his strange observations, the layered strata provokes visions of cakes and sandwiches. A pilates class for mountains drifts across the airways. A foot disturbs the mud and a hand strokes the rock, subtle traces of ancient atmospheres linger in the air.
Geomyth explores peculiar instances in the land about us, from the tops of high mountains to the depths of the earth. Piecing together a series of scenarios, it seeks that which waited for it all along.
