I cannot un-see Mace blue headed guy, but i see a blue/depressed guy getting ready to jump to the traffic below (sorry lol)

Or possibly surveying the city ala some Ghost in the shell scenes

I like how the blue-headed guy on the right-hand side is bending backwards, while stretching his green arms. He clearly seconds away from puking on the sidewalk, and the fellow with the big yellow head and brown sweater is watching it from a distance.

Okay, I initially thought "WTF!?".

However, try this.

Stare at the image from about 12 inches away from the screen. Instead of looking at the image, look through it.

Got it?

Right, while staring though the image, tilt/move your head from side to side and see what you notice?

For me, the red/pink square that's by itself seemed like it was floating infront of the rest of the image. A parallax effect was encountered which made the image seem like it had depth and was in 3d.


Now, either I'm going crazy, or this is a thing!

It is late though and I should be sleeping.

NOTE: no drugs or alcohol involved.

what lemming said... i tend to stare at it over and over again... hmmm.... what do create that in in me, your creation do that to me... I like it even I tell myself it is othing but it is - it is created and it is there and I must relate to it - I think it is something I like more and more... strange... you are great that way in this... it is really something one can not leave alone because it is there and it demand feedback in a way... my feedback is that it is something else and it is great!

Another quote no idea by whom (maybe made up): It's controversial, so it's great art :)

Medicus: If you want to believe this is random, feel free to think that. It's not though. (It does not mean anything though, either.) But the way that stuff is layed out is not random at all.

Is this some kind of social experiment? "Some of the monkeys appreciated the random ascii-crap while others started throwiing fecies".

Two nice quotes from John Cage then?:

"The first question I ask myself when something doesn't seem to be beautiful
is why do I think it's not beautiful. And very shortly you discover that there is no reason."

"If something is boring after two minutes, try it for four. If still boring,
then eight. Then sixteen. Then thirty-two. Eventually one discovers that it is not boring at all."

Even as a fan of the abstract, first I was like

...so why do I keep going back to looking at it? And why do I like it more and more, the more I look at it? It does do something to me, and that is impressive.

Yes, of course I did arrange stuff in a way that is pleasing to me, colours and shapes.
User Comment
Submitted by TheRyk on 20 January 2015
ok let's say the same philosophy in terms of limiting/reducing to very few shapes and colors. And (at least I hope) you _did_ think or let's say felt anything about colors, whatever it was :)

Dunno if it is the same philsophy. This for me was just playful exploration of some very strict limitations. I think he had some deeper ideas, maybe. Not sure.
