    Well, while you wrote the new EOW, I was sleeping

    Anyway, it's a little abstract topic, so in comparing to previous EOW, there might be lesser challengers. But I'm going to it, I like such themes.

    Here's a WIP. Not sure if I'm going to go with this one, as I don't think it shows that we're in space, talking about space dementia. Using the environment to show state of mind is an interesting challenge. I'm aiming for cold, paranoid, claustrophobic, and surreal, so my ideas so far have been to mix environments. I'm trying to think of boogeymen, or weird things that only happen in dreams, that I can add.

    Oh, I am SO going for this! This is the kind of thing I regularly try to achieve in my art - only, more bodies and less environment - so still a challenge.
    *excitement!*

    *edit* actually Im not quite sure how to interpret this.

    Outer space.
    inner space.

    Brief
    I find this a fascinating subject. it takes us out of the realm of the concrete and realistic
    because it is an environment of the mind
    so...environment of the mind.
    as if we could look inside our -conceptual- brains and show whats there?
    I'm thinking of the movie "The Cell" - that was definitely an environment of the mind.
    I'm also reminded of the many environments of dreamland from the Sandman comics.

    but what about the 'outer' space part?

    well.. i does say "space " dementia. theres a lot of ways you could go with that. one way id as the vision of outer space by a mind that has gone insane.
    ti definatly leads my imagination towards a sense of hallucination caused by the vastness and isolation of how I imagine space travel would be.

    but
    space could be interpreted a lot of ways too

    what I was getting at withthe innerspace outerspace dichotomy is that it's not "just" "space" it's space as seen by someone/thing. whose senses are not interprrting it literally.

    dunno if this helps..or makes it worse

    It's defiantly interesting. But at first it seems difficult to merge the two; also how to show them together in one image I feel is going to be key.

    I like the idea of almost forced hallucination through isolated travel i.e. a character looking out of a ships window and seeing something paranormal like a Tron face made from the clouds of dust.

    I seem to remember an article about how Hubble or some astrologer had taken a picture of the clouds which had the suggestions of the face of Jesus.
    The whole idea of super imposed images/hallucinations over natural space seems to be my logical path through the idea.

    What a strange topic, so strange I have to try this one... the topic makes me think of Pan's Labyrinth.

    by space you don't mean literally space in the astrological sense of the word do you? from what I understand its a conflict of perception of reality (outerspace) and hallucination (innerspace), but I'm not quite sure...

    you can get any helpyou want.... we don't care. especially if it makes it better. theres a bunch Environment experts who hang around in here..

    ethan-- um I mean space in just about any damn way you can think of atomic space astrological space personal space, the space between the notes in good Jazz and the the space between you and me when it heats up with our proximity. open you mind to possibility.... the rules are flexible.. and the better the art, th emore flexible th einterpretation

    GOGOGOGOGOGOOOOOOOOOO!

    Chaos, don't be disappointed, some of us come late to the party sometimes... sounds like a pretty interesting topic too.

    By the way, Happy new year. Demented Space in 2009...

    I want to do some sort of desert mirage image, but maybe that is too obvious. I'll post up some sketches tomorrow anyway.

    space dementia

    well, some interesting stuff posted yet. i tried to get 'space' as in 'time' (without time there would be no space possible)
    Dementia as in, a conflict with perception.. so space dementia as in "a conflict of percepting time and space"

    so im still struggling kinda... some idea's here.. plz tell me if im on the wrong/right track in terms of the boundary of the topic.

    ps. about the eow, is it a must to have it painted? or may it be a b/w drawing? because thats a lot faster and i because i dont have much time, i would love to participate

    The area for interpretation is very big, even chaosrocks said it. For me, your interpretation fits very well there and sounds interesting, but the tricky part is how you will show it in drawing.

    By the way, yesterday I've finished watching Dennou Coil anime (I recommend for everybody it), where the real world and artificial world are in the same place, for example, for humans there are in fact two bodies, one made with flesh, second is virtual, which is a bit popular motive in science world, under "parallel dimensions" name. It's pretty obvious these kind of bodies were coexisting - virtual body could affect the real body and it was showed in interesting way in anime, but you would have to watch it to get the idea

    ps. about the eow, is it a must to have it painted? or may it be a b/w drawing? because thats a lot faster and i because i dont have much time, i would love to participate
    FAQ clearly states the black and white versions are allowed. Besides, painting/drawing isn't the most important factor. It's something that everybody can learn. Concept is a hardest factor - training brain to get interesting ideas is possible, but there are boundaries The kind of person that can imagine incredible ideas can be counted on fingers, unfortunately.. perhaps it's time to take drugs?
