|What do you see?|
This increasingly frequent image is in fact a program. We see it or similar images more often now than ever. How many of us have failed to notice high profile figures, such as Obama promoting it?
As an artist, I sketch or paint to captivate and evoke emotion from the viewer, hoping to draw them in. Having written my dissertation on film and media, it becomes a natural instinct to carefully analyze the images and symbols we normally take for granted every day. When pointing out to friends the subliminal images around them, it is sometimes surprising to see the alarm on their faces. However, their shock may not be due to their own ignorance, but rather fear and regret for having asked for an explanation. This is why some time ago I tried to instigate a campaign to persuade people to boycott Amazon Kindle. Apart from giving Amazon the power to ban or censor certain books, such Aldous Huxley's "Brave New World" or George Orwell's "1984", Kindle can also input certain phrases for Neuro-linguistic programming. An example could be the book, "Catcher In The Rye".
