About the Piece: “A Parade of Strange Ideas” shows a spontaneous procession of subtle ideas without words emerging from the unconscious, and growing as multi-dimensional shapes in some back-alley of the mind. The various species of things from the mind are shaped by their relationships between each other, as they are in nature. But they are always changing and nothing is simple or easy to name and describe. They seem real, yet float free of symbolism or explicable meaning.
