Intechtion - Widescreen by BordomBeThyName Intechtion - Widescreen by BordomBeThyName
Ok, so no BS, I designed this one to be a social commentary (I was tired of being an artist with no meaningful art).

It's about the overwhelming presence of technology and artificiality in daily life.

The sharp angles, trigonometric shapes, and perfect circles represent technology, all advancing on the chaotic (natural) center of the piece. The red/white/black color scheme was supposed to mirror the human bloodstream, just to show how much technology affects us. (I also added some arrows in just to show direction a bit better, but I'm really not sure if I like them or not, I might remove them later.

So art critics, how'd I do? :D

I do hate how technologically orientated and controlled everything is these days. I think the ebb and flow of nature and the chance and chaos of life are beautiful things that we try too hard to contain. It's very interesting looking at this though that I find the arrows comforting shapes amidst the chaos. I think you've got a magnificent piece here. I'd love to hear more people's opinions on it.

Sometimes you have to wonder if people are dominating the planet, or if the things we make are.

You think the arrows are comforting? How so? Just because of the presence of a familiar shape amidst the random chaotic backdrop?

Yeah, I'm still really undecided on the arrows. Maybe if I made them lighter?

whatever, it doesn't matter if you're a critic or not, you're giving some feedback and that's all I'm asking for :D

I got all distracted by school and stuff.
If I didn't already have like a billion things to do tonight I'd go through and start a bunch of conversations in your gallery again.
