Timelines: Personalised Doctor Who graphics – Celebrating 50 years of Time-Travel!

Well, by now you can’t have failed to notice..that the whole World is heading for a cataclysmic event of epistopic proportions..  (epic is such a common word now..so am borrowing `epistopic’ from the Doctor Who series itself!).

Actually it’s not cataclysmic …but jubilant and utterly Celebratory!

No other TV show has been going on for 50 yrs – yes okay with a few years of break in the middle! But that’s like a person going all recluse for few years and returning to family & friends.. What matters is when it started..and if it’s still `alive’  🙂   Besides, in the `gap years’ there have been plenty of audio & video dramas of Doctor Who stories..  starring actual past `Doctors’ ..so I call that a good continuity!

Right..  I have much to say about a Hero and a show that has inspired me, seen me through personal hard times, propelled me to go on and do a Physics Degree, turn my hate of History & Sociology into deep interests and much more..

But ..bit busy right now..!

So I’ll start ..by sharing some of my recent art works/ graphics…modeled on the `Time Lord mythos’ ..as it becomes applicable to my own life. (not that you’ll know..unless you are a close friend ..)

The personal story so far…

Timelines (c) Mani Navasothy   - May2013
1.  Timelines (c) Mani Navasothy – May2013

The original TimeLine graphics  (above) shows me at various events..wearing masks (for Pagan ceremonies etc).. and key points..  with key people (partner, sister)..

But the one below is a variation on my original `TimeLine’ graphics…but with a Halloween Twist (with `Death’) in the middle..  It’s as if other forces have started to interfere with my timelines..  (bit like when the `Great Intelligence’ jumped into the Doctor’s  time-steam in `The Name of the Doctor’)

And below you can see a recent one I started to do..  called `Regeneration’ ..as a result of  personal stuff…!   (yes I really was going through difficult times in my life ..this whole year has been like that- sadly).

On an artistic level, this (above) shows two separate `worlds’ merging..  (the outdoor nature shot is taken in Euston, London, and the indoor shot is part of the Westminster tube station, London..   and the Tardis is a photo of the model that is outside Earl’s Court tube station, London)..and me..well, that’s a photo of me in my room.. ! 🙂  The `jacket’ of course is my 9 year old `tribal jacket’ (that I wear for rituals in woodlands..)

This then leads into the one below.. called `UnRegenerate’ ..  and it takes the concept of a Regeneration `going wrong’..  (as in the case of when The Master trying to regenerate beyond his 12th incarnation in the `Deadly Assassin’ (Tom Baker story set in Gallifrey).  I used the same background graphics as before..but used a new photo of me being in my comfy night robes at home..

This then leads me to a strange one in the middle.. `Shadow Hunter’.  The idea is that the `Regeneration’ has gone a bit warped..creating a fractured / splintered personality..  ie the Shadow.. of the Self.

And all this finally brings about a happy resolution..which is.. `Manifestations’   – where the process is complete, and a more settled `new’ self finally surfaces and..settles..  🙂 ..and about time too…’cos it’ll be my birthday soon.. !  ps. If I ever run a big magical empowering conference or something ( a festival)  I’d call it..  `Mani-Fest’ of course… a play on words..my name..and festival..but also about manifesting your own realities..:-)
