‘Schizotypal - Magical Thinking’

A self-portrait depicting the experience of the creative process,
inspiration and ‘magical thinking’ of a schizotypal mind.

Some of the seemingly random flotsam and jetsam which constantly
drift across his stream of consciousness, and the distracting sparks
that flutter around his focus, are occasionally interesting enough
to be stored in the little boxes in the background.

Organising his thoughts, each of the boxes is lined with a sense of purpose
and is held in place by walls of doubt, but occasionally a link between
two or more boxes may be noticed, loosening the bonds, and when
two or more links attract each other an idea is formed.

If the idea is strong enough in purpose to overcome the powerful doubts,
the idea becomes that type of inspiration which demands attention,
when the artist then becomes compelled to divert his focus on to
cultivating form from the persistent idea, often to the exclusion
of everything else, just to see what could happen.

I created this by individually placing 2,786 cells, twisting each into
dynamic relationships with its neighbour by joining
130,994 points by hand.
