Re: June 07 Contest Discussion

Thanks for the insight into your entry, Photomaster.

I'm thinking your approach was guided primarily by the "Dali" facet of the contest. My effort, on the other hand, is focused more on the "Surrealism" aspect with emphasis on modern times.

I wanted to portray a tendency toward "techo-isolate", if you will. The promise of ubiquitous technology meant to unite by touting ease of communication has actually caused separation, alienation and solitariness. In doing so, the line between surreality and reality is being progressively blurred.

It was most certainly an enjoyable, provocative exercise.

Re: June 07 Contest Discussion

I see others have interpretted thier interpretations so I'll offer mine. Past, present and future in the framework of time (depicted as gravity). The past hangs like a heavy, wet blanket on the decaying tree of memory. The present (physically much smaller but perceptively as close/large) temporarily liberated by the clothespins of attention and the winds of change/action/creativity. The future (a structurally strong form) struggling to grow, push up and take form upon the clothesline...yikes!

And Congratulations Photomaster!
