timeless ...

“I have Loved you for a Thousand Years
 And I will Love you for a Thousand more


this song sung by Christina Perry is not only beautiful and haunting, it has the power to transport one to a different place and time where love is Forever Eternal. and age-old love stories are written in books that are stained with the elements of time, but never forgotten.

inspired by this thought and vision, i made TIMELESS ...

the intense surge of different emotions i felt during the creative process was ... one of a kind. i am SO in love with this piece ... so in love. 

this piece took me many hours to construct as each page was lovingly burned by incense and fashioned in a way that the burned hole in the middle of the page tapers towards a blood red heart. i have also included little features like miniature music notes, miniature love letters and miniature dictionary excerpts in between the stained blank pages. 

here is what i call 'the Progression' towards the core ...


i have however, left many untainted and unfilled pages behind this heart for the love stories of the next Thousand years.
i wonder who would write in them ...

  21. This brings to mind a quote from Hamlet:

    "Give me that man that is not passion’s slave, and I will wear him in my heart’s core, ay, in my heart of heart, as I do thee."
