“There are now no more horizons. And with the dissolution of horizons we have experienced and are experiencing collisions, terrific collisions, not only of peoples but also of their mythologies. It is as when dividing panels are withdrawn from between chambers of very hot and very cold airs: there is a rush of these forces together. ” – Joseph Campbell
Subterranean Oracle is an attempt to meld collisions into being. One side for the fantasy, one is for the power of the natural world and one is for plausible reality.
I started this because of my fascination with Victorian era steam machines and the fantastic gods of Greek mythologies. I also put a bit of shamanism in the creative pot. What came out is sort of an offspring of three different parents, a mythical mechanical A.I. The animal skulls represent what power the subterranean oracle machines hold. The vessel represents mechanical machinations. And the all seeing eye represents the invisible force that controls it. It also represents the visions of Jules Verne, H.G. Wells and H.P. Lovecraft, the demigods of the Science fiction world. Their visions dissolved the horizons of the improbable in their time and this is my own version of what they've seen in the future.
