I'M A PRISM TOO
by Russel Thokozani Mbulelo Kana
A million questions and no one to unlock the key?
The riddle is me. I'm the sphinx I'm the wall opening.
The closing. The yesterday coming.
The clock tower watch. The dreamer's fornication.
I'm working on a work titled 'I'm a Prism too'.
Here is a few lines on my thought processes on what my goal and aim in the work is.
I've called this work I'm a prism because, we are vessels. We are travelers through time and into eternity. Time is a diamond in my hand. We're stars blazing through the dark night. We are light. I see thought as this, a light beam. Formless yet appearing in all forms. As it hits the vessel it changes. The light splits into a rainbow of colors , some unseen to the naked eye. It continues as the speed of light into infinite possibilities. This is how the mind and body experiences emotions and thoughts. The mind is the prism. The processing of information, colors seen and unseen, reason and experience.
Our image must change. We must define it. We as Africans. We with our own free thoughts have this power to liberate ourselves from viral stereotypes, lies about our nature. Our time is this to educate ourselves about the truth and to share it. My hand is a wave, these images are the new and perpetual tide. A cosmic transformation, a consciousness that beckons. We are children of the stars. Our lineage is a free humanity. Our legacy is greatness not slavery. These images are this movement. Us digging into our true selves. These images are Narcissist looking into the oasis of the soul and being marveled by his true being, by his magnificence and beauty.
