The focal point for the creations of Beaufort London is the naval history of Great Britain; the real part and an imagined and embellished part. Always with a dark and strange side, which is the fascinating thing about Beaufort London.
Since Ancient Greece, philosophers believed that humans had four liquids, called humours, and that their balance determined a person’s state of mind.
Linked to the four elements, if these humours did not relate well to each other, or did not mix, they suffered from Acrasia.
A state of mind that makes it impossible for a person to perform coherent actions and the inability to follow what should be in the best interest of the person undertaking an action.
Described by Plato in many of his texts, it is not a new state of mind, but something that is involuntarily part of being human. Not doing what you ought to do, or if we extrapolate it to Beaufort London’s Acrasia, a rose is a rose and it is not a rose.
Not everything is what it seems at first sight.
Based on a poem by Edmund Spenser, an English poet of Shakespeare’s time, and his poem The Fairy Queen, in which one of the main characters is Acrasia.
