S & M
What beauty is in the basement under the stairs? The true work of the artist, or the true nightmare for the subject? A short story where the thin line between sanity and madness (S & M) is both explored and exposed, as you descend the basement stairs to see his greatest work yet.
Are you listening closely? Pay attention as you are taken on a guided tour down to the basement by the artist who has created his most wonderful spectacle yet. It is a very intimate, very intense one-on-one with the artist, but what lies in wait at the end of the story that you are taken through? Is the art installation which is hidden underneath the stairs an aberration or a sublime beauty because of the source of its inspiration? It’s for you to decide.
Author Notes: I just wanted to explore the thin line between sanity and madness and how something so wrong could produce something beautiful. It’s all about perspective at the end of the day, and while this is a very dark story, it is one of my favourites because it is intended to take the reader to a place where they may not want to go, but can’t help get drawn along.
