Dreaming in Legos with Nathan Sawaya,ya………ya
Legos. Legos. Legos. Legos. Yes. Yes. The pinnacle of childhood joy. There was nothing quite like building something in wonderful colours, then placing it somewhere everyone could see. Then SMASHING IT! Then picking up the pieces of such a catastrophe. Then creating something totally different based on your little childish imagination. Sure it wasn’t so awesome without any instructions to help you. But it was your creation GOD DAMNIT! Remember when you were asked: “What do you wanna do when you get older little Tommy?” “Why I want to make legos” You’d answer in a cute voice. And they’d all laugh. Belittling your dreams. The bastards……. Well someone didn’t grow up with the world. Yes. Nathan Sawaya said fuck off to the teachers and did what we were all too pussy to do. Also he has way more skill than any of us. Nathan builds lego sculptures. For who? Himself. And plus people pay him and junk. All I know is that each work of art is literally layered by childhood reminiscence and they are so incredibly awesome that no matter what you accomplish in your life Nathan did it with a few legos.
