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…
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’)
2. TimeLines2 (c) Mani Navasothy 2013
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).
3. Regeneration (c) Mani Navasothy 2013
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..
4. UnRegenerate (c) Mani Navasothy 2013
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.
5. Shadow Hunter (c) Mani Navasothy 2013
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..:-)
6. Manifestations (c) Mani Navasothy – Nov13
And that brings me to something else that I shall blog later this evening.. something that will blow you side-ways..to know ab out the good Doctor Who.. !
