The 2nd Marianne Dreams House

 This house is the second variation on a dream location described in the book "Marianne Dreams", by Catherine Storr. The house contains a boy who lost the will to live, a house with barred windows at first and no interior furnishings, except a wooden bench on which the pajama-clad boy rests, surrounded by encroaching rocks with evil eyes. Marianne enters the house (which she had created, by drawing it with some sort of very powerful pencil) in her dreams, while herself being bedridden with some illness, and engages with the boy, whose name is Mark (he could have been aptly called "Mark One" had this story been set in a science fiction as opposed to a sort of fantasy setting). She challenges him, who has polio, to get out of his self-protective identification with the limitations and the confinement of his illness, and finally succeeds, after having empowered him by dreaming/drawing up an exercise bike for him to train his legs, to have them both rescued by helicopters.

Le Comte Ory / Expectation and Trepidation / The Great God Pan

 This image would need no further comment, if the idea of the comment was merely to describe or amplify that what is shown in the image. What is shown lies on a plane where laughter, sighs, and giggles reign. A poem or song would be better suited to accompany this drawing of the salon or bidet variety. "Le Comte Ory", pencil on pink letter paper (A4) The artist feels however inclined to add that the scenery depicted has very little to do with the Comte Ory storyline of Verdi's opera buffa, but is indeed showing members of a dance troupe passing the night in a castle unwillingly offered to them as a shelter for the night by an oddly motivated aristocratic owner, who is torn between his own ingrained hospitality and the knowledge that harm will befall his guests because the castle is also claimed as a hunting ground for young female victims by his vampiric brother, who, being undead, naturally has no legal claim tho the castle, inherited by his surviving brother.

Marathon Sports School at Circle Park

Observe a sports centre dedicated to the production of well trained future elite athletes, beautifully situated at the Marathon Circle Park which surrounds this capital city of an efficiently administrated yet aesthetically and culturally behind powerhouse nation state. In the foreground, bottom left, the viewer can observe a starkly geometric abstract corroded steel structure which seems to obliquely aim at the stars, its elements and angles forming a  representation of the molecule Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate.

Taking Tiger Mountain by Strategy

Look at a brutalist office edifice with sustainable cooling scheme, dedicated to the established best practice of social work and the prevention of social disintegration by all forms of deviancy, including chronic fatigue. The Three Strategies of Huang Shigong (Pencil, colored pencil, acrylics on paper, 65 x 50 cm)   Antitransgressive prevent strategy has three specific objectives: respond to the ideological challenge of deviancy and the threat we face from those who promote it, prevent people from being drawn into deviancy and ensure they are given appropriate advice and support, work with sectors and institutions where there are risks of radicalisation (hot spots, suburban abandoned areas, et al.) See how the sculptures of three modes of transportation - (steam powered, bodily propulsion by legs, petrol based motorized solution) are forming an allegory of adaptability and the value of "getting out of the comfort zone", to achieve better social results which will all eventua
