My goal with an image like Platala is to create a field that is so visually lush that it is distracting. This kind of image should be beautiful, with so many decorative elements, that no one is much concerned about where it comes from. Platala is not the creation of linear thinking, nor intended to appeal in a linear fashion. The making of Platala took flexibility of thought and process, as well as a central curvilinear shape, good music and drugs (I may be kidding about the drugs). It will repay consideration from the viewpoint of receptivity rather than as a straight linear progression from subject to post-production and publication.
