    In the future after humankind no longer exists I hope our ancestors find this series:

    I believe they sum up the human condition amazingly well. Masterworks indeed.

    G:

    Good grief.

    Why did you feel the need to juxtapose these images together? I’m not exactly trying to attack you, but I am at a loss as what your meaning is.

    *CRITICISM TIME!*

    Of all the holidays, why would you feel the need to (what I feel) trivialize what many consider a Holy Day? You have every right to be
    ‘artistic,’ but you should at least respect that this weekend is consider sacred by many. You are really throwing stones at a wasp’s nest with this entry.

    Before I go on, I REALLY think you need to coherently explain what you are trying to say. I’m not trying to start a debate; I just want to know what is going on.

    (Cue in Logocentric’s really confusing response littered with really big words.)

    *yawn* Seriously, I’m way tired.

    One of the wonderful things about visual art is that the viewer can have their own perspective on a piece. They don’t need to have it explained because the piece exists (on one level) to be interpreted by the viewer. But since you ask for an explanation here ya go.

    I believe the world needs a savior, now more than ever.

    The video shows humanity at its worst I believe. It comes from the movie Naqoyqatsi: Life as War.

    The world is not bunny rabbits and easter eggs. We are tearing it apart daily. Little by little. If there truly is a savior this is the time for him to make himself known. Many predict the second coming of Christ. I’m all for it, if indeed the stories are true.

    I hope this helps you think more about what this day means and where we are as a collective. Too often these holidays come and go without little thought as to their true meaning. I often try to engage others in looking deeper. So with that said, I hope you attempt to go deeper this Easter and think about what the Easter story means to you as an individual and to humanity.

    I don’t think there were any BIG words in there for you so I hope that helps.

    the very existence of any holy day is usually the result of some prophet who criticized the holy days of his/her time…

    jesus was the critic of holy days par excellence…who flipped over tables in the temple to show the religious how to keep their holiness from being turned into a market…

    when holiness becomes a blockade to artistic exploration then it is a dogma, grounded in superstition, and very far from faith…

    G:

    I appreciate the explanation of what you were trying to do. The point of your presentation has come clearer. Whether I agree with your response is up for debate.

    On that note….

    HAPPY EASTER, GLOBATRON!

    HE HAS RISEN!
