U – Unaiza. K – Kamil
U: Do you write?
K: Yes occasionally when the need arises. You can read them on my deviant art journal. The rest are on my PC at home and my old diaries.
U: You take pictures too? i didn’t know that.
K: Don’t call them pictures. Its photography.
U: Why don’t you like the term “pictures”?
K: because it sounds so inconsequential.
U: Do your pictures have consequences?
K: To me? Yes. To the rest of the world. I frankly don’t care what they think. But it would be good to think that it makes some impact other then mere aesthetics.
U: They are mere aesthetics. That’s what art is no?
K: Yes among other things. But i don’t take pictures or paint a canvas so it looks on my mantle piece or sell it to some moron with money who thinks it looks good above his bed while he’s seducing some woman.
U: Then why do you do all that?
K: Self expression. Talking with my pictures or canvas as i do with my words.
U:You said u didn’t like the term pictures.
K: yes i said it for your sake.
U: U do things for other peoples sake?
K: No. People annoy me.
U: Do all people annoy you?
K: Yes. Em searching for Atlantis.
U: What is Atlantis?
K: A Place Where Only Heroes. because they carry the essence of Life within them.
U: who are heroes?
K: People who are original.
U: Is God Original?
K: No. They say He made man in his own image. I think he did a terrible job at it. Left us with the crap, and kept the good stuff for Angels.
U: Your envious of Angels?
K: Yes, they have wings. But we built planes.
U: Which would u rather have? Wings or Planes?
K: Wings. I wouldn’t be left at the mercy of other peoples whims.
U: Do you paint?
K: Yes, oil on canvas.
U: I didn’t take you for the artistic type.
K: I don’t like stereotypes.
