A little presentation on my work Gethsemane explaining the symbolism behind the image, the color red representing the blood of Christ, the clear image order and the out of focus part, chaos, the two lights below personifying multiple characters as well as the meaning of the trees behind .

Gethsemane was the garden in which Jesus was betrayed, shown here in a modern photographic representation.
A still, clear image of an icon of Jesus, representing order situated in the center of a fuzzy chaotic photo to symbolize the turbulent time which is about to unfold.
The icon is pinned onto a tree which signifies the Tree of Knowledge in the Garden of Eden but also the Cross on which he was crucified as well as the Olive Tree under which Jesus sat in the Gethsemane Garden.
The two lights below personify Mary, the Mother of Jesus and Mary Magdalene who were present at the time of his crucifixion but also God and the Holy Ghost as well as Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.
Although a digital photograph, the image has had no photoshopped effects added in post but rather came into being gradually while shot on location by using a slow shutter speed on a stormy night. Thus giving it a surrealistic feel in order to place the viewer in a mystical world which to my mind resembled the actual Gethsemane Garden and to also offer the audience quick glimpses into the Garden of Eden at the moment of The Fall".

"Emil Cioran is known for both the complexity of his views on philosophy and his exquisite literary style. Perched on the boundary of literature and philosophy, Cioran’s deftly commands both subjects – at times with a spartan, haunting beauty and at other times with stinging criticism.

Daniel Branco provides a scintillating and insightful explanation of one of Cioran’s most complicated themes – the connection between time, utopia, and historical progress. Branco’s meticulous study of Cioran not only examines his published works, but also explores Cioran’s personal life and how it influenced his writing, along with Cioran’s affliction with severe insomnia, a factor which also bestowed him with lucidity.

These experiences not only had a profound experience on Cioran, they also had an impact on his perception of both time and concept of utopia. This in turn, demonstrated to Cioran that the notion of modern progress is false, and that the essential essence of humanity does not change throughout the passage of various epochs and civilizations. This, and the complexity of time and emptiness, also demonstrated to Cioran that modern philosophy itself cannot progress.

Dr. Daniel Branco holds a Licentiate Degree in Philosophy from UECE, a Bachelor of Philosophy from UECE, a Bachelor of Theology from FATIN, and completed Specialization in the History of Brazil by INTA. He also holds a Master’s Degree in Philosophy from UFC and a Doctorate in Philosophy from UFC. He is the author of several articles published in academic journals."

Ioan Petru Culianu or Couliano (5 January 1950 – 21 May 1991) was a Romanian historian of religion, culture, and ideas, a philosopher and political essayist, and a short story writer. He served as professor of the history of religions at the University of Chicago from 1988 to his death, and had previously taught the history of Romanian culture at the University of Groningen.
An expert in Gnosticism and Renaissance magic, he was encouraged and befriended by Mircea Eliader. Culianu published seminal work on the interrelation of the occult, Eros, magic, physics, and history.
Culianu was murdered in 1991. It has been much speculated his murder was in consequence of his critical view of Romanian national politics. Some factions of the Romanian political right openly celebrated his murder.The Romanian Securitate, which he once lambasted as a force "of epochal stupidity", has also been suspected of involvement and of using puppet fronts on the right as cover.
