I'm lying in bed, Berlin, winter, era of panic. I'm tired but I can't sleep. Meditation isn't working. Music plays in my head. I'm listening, or imagining. 🎵 In pitch dark / I go walking in your landscape / Broken branches / Trip me as I speak / Just 'cause you feel it doesn't mean it's there / Just 'cause you feel it doesn't mean it's there / 🎵 There's always a siren singing you to shipwreck / Steer away from these rocks; we'd be a walking disaster / Just 'cause you feel it doesn't mean it's there / Just 'cause you feel it doesn't mean it's there / There there! 🎵 And I remember, or maybe I'm just dreaming. The world crashes all at once, all the moods and anxieties. I want peace to bloom. I escape into visions, tell myself visual stories. If only I could be somewhere else, the place I'm picturing. ✨

KEITH TELFEYAN received an MFA in New York from Parsons the New School for Design in the field of Photography & Related Media. Time, space and perception are major themes throughout his work. Keith uses the camera to further a meditation practice, aiming at something like spiritual awareness. He employs minimalism for a poetic simplicity and perspectival rigidity for formal cohesion.
