primal / theme
Eve -- the first, the original of which subsequent instances are merely copies, the wellspring, the source, the root of the tree, the universal mother whose existence we deduce by backwardly extrapolating from our own genome. Primal is primitive, raw, unsophisticated, unmediated, in a state of nature. Drawing upon impulses which have their seat in the reptile brain. Unsullied, unknowable, ungovernable, uncontrollable.
Themes represent basic categories of thought, emotion, or value. While our assignment of themes may at times seem arbitrary or whimsical, they serve to link together artists and movements along non- hierarchial pathways. Follow the themes to look for new disciplines that share qualities with those you already like, or to open up new worlds of Art and Culture.
