Writing is probably one of the most incredible tool human beings ever came up with. While many of them are definitely handy, not all are complete game changers. After all, asynchronous communication allows sharing knowledge through time and space: nothing a Swiss army knife can compete with. Writings don't care about delay, borders, nor even death. How cool.

Have you ever tried communicating with an older version of yourself? Just to see if anything interesting could arise? Well, just get your hands on some text you once wrote. It can be old school work, ten years ago e-mails, old fashioned post card, anything. With luck, you could learn something in the process, and write about it... at least, you'd be probably in for smiles and fun. Worth the risk!

For those wondering, the face effect has been achieved using a photo of an opening book, taken from the side. The torso hole has been made with several torn paper sheets, and finally the wooden letters have been taking a bath in a plate filled with milk. Compositing is so fun :)

Thanks for watching my stuff. I wish you all a great and happy new year!

Iím guessing this is a Gyaban original. There is no mistaking your genius.

A suffusion of symbols - way too many in my opinion. I'd have beed happier with the head and left arm only, or the head and the sliced thoughts sprinkled on the table.
Certainly well done and worth a bump
