There are three things about Casey that I immediately noticed: She’s not afraid to let her mind wander into cryptic corners, poking about with a stick, and then sharing the poking with you. Her pieces are often densely-layered, the kind where you know you didn’t get it all the first read-through, but you are happy to run the gamut again. And she sometimes bases her musings on music videos of songs that I greatly admire, which anyone who visits Bonnywood on a regular basis knows is something that speaks to my heart.

I spoke with Casey about which of her stories she would like me to share, and while she proffered up several options, I chose to go with a selection that she did not mention. (I hope she forgives me.) It’s a short piece, but it’s a nice introduction, hinting at the imagery that you will find if you choose to dig deeper. Enjoy.

Note: The opening photo is a random snap from my phone, a screenshot from a video game I once played, wherein it was important that I remember a secret code in order to accomplish something or other, I don’t remember. But I found it a fitting image for an artist where you aren’t sure what you’re getting, but you want to know more…
