About Syoujou Ooido (OIDON)'s works.
OIDON's hand-drawings that ultimately digitalize patterns seen in nature are so microscopic and big at the same time. They have harmony in chaos having both ends- you know, it kind of reminds me of myself being in chaos and harmony at the same level.
OIDON once told me he always starts drawings before he even knows what he's doing, and I believe that's the time your consciousness comes out. That's the time you can see your roots when you recognize your unconsciousness.
OIDON's roots grow so deep and far, and I want him to keep tracking the roots till the end.
His work is my kind of thing- not being good or bad though, it's like being itself accomplishes its being. I don't even know if they are even drawings- but they actually exist, right? Ha-ha.
What you can depend on is not your guts but your unconsciousness.
Keep up the good work unconsciously.
