Ideas for The New Year

“Hold an umbrella in one hand and a surprise in the other!” 

Find a new book, make some terrible art work. Get lost in a new city. Explore good magic and keep learning new skills! Write a poem, bake some cookies for a friend. Make a treasure map, and if you find  a new key in the clue, make a copy!

Optivion -New Year is here

Perhaps the most important of all, sing your favorite song, loud and clear and don’t worry so much about the harmony!

The Forgotten Reactors

Japan’s cabinet approved an energy policy reversing the previous government’s plans to slowly retire nuclear power plants, Total amnesia forgetting the 2011 Fukushima disaster.

Kyoto Garden Wormhole

Optivion - Kyoto Garden Wormhole

*

*

While in Kyoto I made a piece or artwork titled: The Lady and the Wormhole.
The gardens in the city set a mood of serenity and quiet embrace. I was working on a short story about a woman who could travel through space using her garden as the vehicle. I had a dream about her wearing a blue kimono using the small magical landscape to travel through time. In Japan the landscape is part of the history of the town or the prefecture. The Shinto religion is ancient in the country and it holds trees, springs and mountains to be places of spiritual power. It would seem any of the gardens I visited would have the possibility for intergalactic transformation, well at least in my imagination.

Android 22

Android 22 by Optivion

(Watercolor and Ink)

The ninja manager of Japan’s tsunami-radioactive Fukushima nuclear plant is quite sad about another hidden leak of fresh radioactive water spilling on October 2013.

The untouchable Tokyo Electric Power Company spoke on the news about the 430 liters of toxic water spilled into the near by land and the Pacific Ocean, seems that workers did not keep an eye on the amount inside a water storage tank.

TEPCO says it did the best to store rainwater from recent typhoons. The main tank was primitive, it was constructed poorly and had no measuring gauge.

The Android was let in by the side door down the dark plant by my imagination and it was allowed a moment to scan for the responsible parties.

Muahahahaha!

I will deliver a cloud nine intergalactic soulful electro-opera, opening with medleys from my recently released album “Create Curiosity” before going full-throttle into a wildly quixotic sonic sorcery…muahaha.

Trains

The locomotive has no country

everywhere a journey requested.

Strange ticket underneath the staircase:

The clock, the feet, the wait,

A spring of regularity exists on passing pulses used to measure a destination.

The bridge above still.

Permission:

Metal opening,

 Dreams enter,

So starts the mechanical wheeled titan.

(The Ghoulie Bot Train will arrive on a secret mission in the year 2068)

Tokyo Tower

The Ghoulie Bot has a hidden transistor in Tokyo Tower (東京タワー, Tōkyō tawā) that activates a secret dimensional portal located in Shiba Park, Tokyo, Japan. At 333 metres (1,093 ft) the tower can conduct a high amount of energy for teleportation.

El  terremoto y tsunami en Japón afectó  la planta nuclear de Fukushima, abrió el debate sobre el peligro del uso de la energía nuclear. La era nuclear es parte del presente.  Represento esa sensación experimentada por mi arte.

リサイクル品を活用して作成したコラージュです。私たちも「リサイクル」を利用して核エネルギーではないエネルギー源を利用できるのではないでしょうか。絵の中の女の子は傘で放射能の雨から身を護っています。放射能による人体への影響は、人類未知の分野であり、その影響を見るには長い年月がかかるでしょう。既に起こってしまった事故は止められませんでしたが、次の事故は私たちの手で防ぐ事ができます!地球はひとつしかありません。

The Mad Hatter and The White Rabbit in Tokyo-Shima

The Hatter will never stop drinking his tea and never forget that The White Rabbit works for the Red Queen. Far behind the cherry blossom we can see the Fukushima hydrogen explosion. Perhaps a “New Beginning” with a new perspective on how we see the safety, potential harm and future of nuclear energy.

The art work was made from recycled materials.

Reactor 3

SONNET 123

No, Time, thou shalt not boast that I do change:
Thy pyramids built up with newer might
To me are nothing novel, nothing strange;
They are but dressings of a former sight.
Our dates are brief, and therefore we admire
What thou dost foist upon us that is old,
And rather make them born to our desire
Than think that we before have heard them told.
Thy registers and thee I both defy,
Not wondering at the present nor the past,
For thy records and what we see doth lie,
Made more or less by thy continual haste.
This I do vow and this shall ever be;
I will be true, despite thy scythe and thee.

~Mr. Shakespear

Lots of art and no sad tomatoes.

Kengo and Ken chan

The unwritten series is about a futuristic Onigiri robot named Kengo, who travels to another dimension in the future to aid the ghost of a schoolboy, Ken Chan! The majority of the spooky unwritten adventures are comedic enterprises with lessons that include virtues such as honorableness, stamina, audacity, and respect for the planet. The most dynamic explorations include homeless ghosts, time machines, global warming, endangered animals, radiation pollution.

Reactor 4

The No.4  reactor building was partly destroyed by early explosions. TEPCO is trying to set up a structure to support the pool from underneath to keep it together.  At the moment Radioactive steam is escaping from the danger zone. Perhaps love can keep it together for now. 相当酷いみたいだな。。。溶解した燃料が移動していると⇒ (o-o) 放射能

Kyoto X Gang

The simple concept of the Kyoto X Gang is that under a new cloud of radiation there is an increasing anti-mutant Movement. The Batter-Bunny decides to train three young mutants to use their powers for the benefit of Japan, and to prove mutants can be good. Batter-Bunny recruited Yuta Bowie, Nana Nene and Mizu Girl.

Tea Time ‘Tokyo-Shima Project’

It’s a hot Tokyo summer this year so I used one of the hydrogen explosions for inspiration.
