Daily Prompt Frame of Mind: If you could paint your current mood onto a canvas, what would that painting look like? What would it depict?
They were using new paintings, the type that comes out alive AND touches you, affects you personally.
And there was a special exhibition, full of such paintings framed and displayed on walls, it was a first time ever trial.
Such an exhibition had never been tried before due to fears it might cause an overload on the spectators’ perceptive sensors, unaccustomed to such visual stimulation, and lead to a coma.
The first visitors to view the paintings were allowed in with great caution.
At first, the paintings took their breaths away and they had to close their eyes until their heartbeats subsided.
When they opened their eyes, they found themselves surrounded with the depictions on the paintings, living them.
They were enveloped in yellow paint of the prairie, green touches of the flowers, brownish grey of buildings, white bright drops of rain, pink of flushed cheeks and blue of wide skies.
They were exhilarated, taken by the colors, a brand new environment of oily plastic brush strokes that surrounded them all around. They had become part of masterpieces, their existence had taken form in art, they had been transformed to a superior being.
Within the wondrous smiles of each spectator, a few started losing their mesmerized gaze in their trance, doubled down where they were standing and threw up.
A few others showed crippling cramps in their body while the rest felt sickly overwhelmed.
Thus, the first enrobing art exhibition proved to be futile, and was cancelled shortly afterwards.
The audience who have had the chance to experience the enrobing art show later reported that most of their senses had weakened, and could not no longer enjoy tastes, smells, views, colors they used to care for before the show. They added that a major gap had opened in their senses distancing them from stimulants that could invoke happiness, pleasure, excitement or any other emotion.
Following the reports, people were once again left to their own devices to observe their surroundings, appreciate their skills and enjoy their existence.
