The Small Blue Monster


Once there was a small blue monster.

No… wait.. I’ll start again.

In the beginning, there was nothing – well, only an inky darkness of night.

– But what happened to the blue monster?

The small blue monster.

– Yes, that one!

Wait and see.

IN THE DARKNESS, a voice rang out.. It sounded like.. golden bells on a late summer’s day.

I don’t like this. It’s too dark and I can’t see anything, said the voice.

Oh hang on. I can see. And I’m an octopus. 

(Light appears). Octopus appears, looking at their arms and legs.

Well, I’d love to stay and talk to you, but I have some stuff to do, over there (gestures to distance). So I’ll see you later. 

Moves out of picture. Appears at the bottom of the frame: I won’t be very long..

Tentacles up and swims away to top right mid screen. Ink blot spreads on the screen.


Speech bubble “BYE!”

About The Mollusc Dimension

"Like existence, art, expression and even the urge to explore are in a state of flux, revelation and memory. Each encounter through the doorway, into the state of creativity is a catalyst for action, emotional and spiritual as well as physical and intellectual. As Krishnamurti says, there is no state of happiness but the state of the creative moment." If you have enjoyed The Mollusc Dimension's work, please follow/like/check out his other pages where you can find music and images. This is currently the "Writing Dept" (eg “just words” — well mainly!) for The Mollusc Dimension, AKA Angelus Squid Marr, a British East-Asian experimental, interdisciplinary artist working in music, image and sound. He has a particular interest in themes of identity, queerness, intersectional feminism, surrealism + education and using lo-fi/ everyday materials (words/experiences/equipment) in addition to technology.
