G r e e t i n g s . My name is Aidan, pronouns he/him, and I am a queer college student majoring in art history. I'm 21 but really don't understand how I got here. Don't let anyone tell you that at 21 you have your life together. This website is heavily inspired by the countless other brilliant artists who exist on Neocities. I love how we have a place to show our passions on our own terms and find community with so many people who feel the same.
More About the site's name. It comes from a combination of my name Aidan and utopia! I really resonate with ideas of utopia that defy linear temporality (which is the idea that we exist only in the present and the past is the past and the future is only ahead). I think art is a place that creates spaces where the past, present, and future are blurred through fantasy and imagination. When you read your favorite novel, look at your favorite poster, listen to that one song that hits just right, don't you enter into a place where time becomes irrelevant and an ecstatic timelessness takes over? Maybe, I know for me this sometimes happens and I am eternally chasing it in my engagement with art and I hope I can share some of that with you on this website.
In my adolescence I discovered the vibrant world of yaoi and as a gay youth really latched on to the intimate moments and fleshed out relationships that were not present in any other media I had access to. The genre endlessly fascinates me and I am super interested in its distances and places of belonging created as it travels around the globe.
