This project started off as a chronological record of visual representations of emotional distress caused by bullying and childhood traumas. As time has progressed this project has provided much more to the artist than originally intended. Rather than a medium for narrowly channeling experiences only related to childhood and bullying, it has now evolved to represent many other aspects of the symbiosis between himself and the universe. This project represents the situations,connections, and phenomena that create monsters within himself, as well as the monsters who create them. The Monstered Project is here to reveal the human psyche's monstrous elements as well as its ability to create monstrosities in others. It also reveals the self's ability to rid itself of monstrosity and heal other's as well. In a sense, the project presents two sides of the same condition, the symbiosis and antibiosis of monstrosity in humanity through the lens of artist's and spiritual journey through existence in the 21st century. May this project serve as an accurate portrait and testament to the many who live this in this world with these experiences.

Project Conclusion

I am concluding Monstered Project with this post. As an artist I have realized that I have reached the end of the path I have taken within the project. This is not to say I will not be doing artwork anymore, for the path of the artist never ends. I will not be doing further work within this project. Its purpose has been fulfilled. I have taken a few steps forward while working on this project and am very grateful towards those who supported me in the process. I will continue posting my artwork and current developments on my new personal blog: eduardo-crespo.tumblr.com

New Statement for Project

New statement of the project that more accurately describes my current dispositions towards my work and the project itself. The original project’s concept was a bit too narrow for my personal journey and artistic needs, therefore, I have decided to broaden my scope in regards to the content of the project at a conceptual level.

This project started off as a chronological record of visual representations of emotional distress caused by bullying and childhood traumas. As time has progressed this project has provided much more to the artist than originally intended. Rather than a medium for narrowly channeling experiences only related to childhood and bullying, it has now evolved to represent many other aspects of the symbiosis between himself and the universe. This project represents the situations,connections, and phenomena that create monsters within himself, as well as the monsters who create them. The Monstered Project is here to reveal the human psyche’s monstrous elements as well as its ability to create monstrosities in others. It also reveals the self’s ability to rid itself of monstrosity and heal other’s as well. In a sense, the project presents two sides of the same condition, the symbiosis and antibiosis of monstrosity in humanity through the lens of artist’s and spiritual journey through existence in the 21st century.

A being becomes confused with himself and his path as a human being when every single thought is invalidated by echoes of past occurrences.
