Synergy of Opposites

w4dx7683vx5rs

What do you call “synergy of opposites” in human terms?
I would say it’s “Love” of elements!

wx3-dsc_8041-rs

There are moments, when some decide to drop all the sharade of big white wedding, masquerade of society convections and create own time to formally seal their wandering through the world. Those peaceful moments shared with close family are far more treasured than “drunken stories” of the world….

Artwork below is inspired by a beautiful moment of togetherness
and is named it “Synergy of Opposites is Love”.

   like from the shadows of frozen land
    not only pain, but fire of passion I’ve seen 
      in new and old, … from depths within.”

The origins of animal roleplay and petplay are probably various and diverse, again depending upon the participants involved. However, its origins are certainly influenced by costuming, fiction, myth and legend, roleplay and psychodrama in their various aspects. Some of the earliest published images of animal play (especially pony play) are to be found in the work of John Willie, primarily in Bizarre magazine published from 1946 to 1959.

Human Pups - London Pride 2015

A puppy or dog is a human pet. It can be a male or female who identifies closely with real biological pups/dogs and lets go their human inhibitions and stress to embrace their animal instinct. They live in the moment, their entire existence revolves around getting a pat on the head, being told they are a good puppy, exploring anything and everything that looks interesting or fun, even if it’s sniffing someone in public. A pup/dog may take on the persona of a biological canine to varying degrees from being on all fours chasing balls and barking instead of talking to only taking on the personality of a pup/dog but retaining their human abilities.

London - Pride 2015

For many it’s just a type of role playing but for others it’s a part of their inner spirit,it’s who they are whether in pup gear or not.

Man with antlers

All rights reserved - Man with antlers, London

Young man in suit, wearing antlers walking streets of central London with book of Kafka in his hand. London street photography. In the office based area around Bank station had this young artist joined crowd of men in suit, slowly walking towards Oxford Circus and engaging in conversation with passers-by, who were not afraid to approach. While quoting following text, he was sharing with “brave” approaching people … he certainly raised smiles on many otherwise serious and busy looking faces. One of the reasons for his eccentric approach was to engage in conversation with complete strangers.

Quote (text from card supplied by artist):
“the animal proposes to the human by indicating … means of escape
that the human would never have thought of by himself”
(Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari 1987)

Street Dancers – Barcelona

Street dancers in Barcelona (Spain) 2013. Group of young dancers performing for public in the old town near citadel. More images to follow …

Barcelona is one of the favorite spots for street performances such as music, flamenco dancing or “street dance” shows. Not only due to its mild weather, beautiful beach or high volume of passing tourists. It’s connected to the local lifestyle, popular with exercise, wide circles of friends, alternative life approach (like Yoga, Buddhism, Taichi) ….
