Head In Tides

The Artist and the Octopus



Head In Tide
– Jason Perez


It has been proven that the octopus is a

creature that performs self-cannibalism. When the octopus is under stress, the

octopus resorts to eating off its limbs one by one. For this reason, I believe the octopus

is much like the artist.  Instead of self-mutilation, I believe the artist

often takes part in a sort of mental mutilation. When your head is in tides

it’s nearly impossible to see your arm is gone.
