Mizaru is my latest animated sculpture on Known Origin.
Part one of a three-part series of animated sculptures based upon the Japanese pictorial maxim which embodies the proverb “See no evil, Hear no evil, Speak no evil”.
Here we have Mizaru. She has been confronted by the horror of seeing newspapers and reality TV where women are objectified, preyed upon, often murdered and discarded like trash.
Like many of us Mizaru has difficulty coping with the cruel world she lives in. She choses to cover her eyes to block out what she is not equipped to cope with.
She escapes into the blissful world of psychadelic drugs, music & art. The distraction suggests happiness to her as she slowly kills herself before anyone else can kill her.
