The moment in time when a good thing takes a turn for the worse

On a trip to Memphis, I visited a Brazilian Steakhouse for the first time. I was not prepared for the parade of meats to come. The steak, lamb, bison, grilled pineapple, pork, and even chicken hearts were all delicious. The servers do not stop the offerings until you flip your indicator to show you have had enough. It is hard to say no to the cavalcade of meat swords. It was glorious.

Then comes the moment in life where somehow the good you were caught up in takes a turn for the worse. I started to sweat. My breath felt labored and my stomach was angry. It almost felt like I was hallucinating. And that was the time that I got The Meat Sweats In Memphis.

When Good Things Take a Turn For the Worse


This long form, generative art collection by mindrash was started as a high concept, Orwellian project capturing the theme of a twisted intertwined beauty in even terrible things. As the months progressed the visuals connected with my Memphis Meat Sweat experience and continued to what is has become today.

There is a twisted beauty in the pieces with a mild hallucinogenic feel. Visuals of labored breath movement, heartburn, and variations of sweat are interspersed with the memory of the delicious meal. You may have never had the meat sweats, but I am sure there are pointed times in your life that connect with this moment.
