We meet again. An unidentified black piece of paper. What kind of new perspective would you teach me today?
A really unconventional pad.
Pig/ porcupines nose.
Not an Oreo.
But its little spikes are cute, reminding me of the word “human” in Japanese.
Looking at the composition of it now, it seems as these “humans” are lined up with equal spaces between them, like in a military or in kindergarten.
When under these system (military/ kindergarten), they get rid of you’re differences and personality to force you to be the same with the rest by uniforms and conformity.
Its like these black peg looking things are representation of conformity and order. They all line up the same and in same black colors in same height.
But why the holes?
Is it a trap? Is it an exit?
Nether less the holes reminded me of a board game called wood labyrinth game.
Its a puzzle where the ball must avoid the holes but the ball is still being manipulated to roll to a certain place. Like most mazes, there’s one entrance and one exit. No matter how you get there, you get to the same place in the end.
1.a complicated irregular network of passages or paths in which it is difficult to find one’s way; a maze.“you lose yourself in a labyrinth of little streets”
synonyms: maze, warren, network, complex, web, coil, entanglement“a labyrinth of little streets”
Is it a labyrinth of life and our society? How hierarchy and chains of command are set into place and some may gain more advantage then others in life.
Maybe the piece is a maze that complicates you and fazes your identity because you get so caught up in confirming into your society.
Why do art works often turn philosophical. Can art exist without having a deep meaning behind it? Can it hold the same amount of value when art purely exist because of its aesthetics.
I feel as though art is more valued when it does have a complex reason for its existence or when it’s abstract but and when it doesn’t, its seen as commercial.
Has there ever been art works that are hugely respected and widely recognized because of its beauty?
I don’t know.
I’m just blabbing now.
