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

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.
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.

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.

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)

Barcelona is one of the favorite spots for street performances such as music, flamenco dancing or “street dance” shows.
