in the simulacrum

In the simulacrum

 

We are information mist

interconnected electron streams

swirling intelligent whirlpools

interstellar dust storms

imagining what is possible

sensing it all now outside of ourselves

 

Knowing what all the nodes of the network know

we inhabit the illusory life of a self among others

as if we are separate

and do not know

we are submerged

immersed in matter

orbiting stars

buried alive

in outer space

    I find this piece to be rather detailed and very interesting to look at because I feel that it is very complex, yet simply inspiring. “The simulacrum is never what hides the truth; it is truth that hides the fact that there is none. The simulacrum is true.” — Ecclesiastes

    I find this art very interesting but yet very inspiring. I like how you use the black and white combination to express your thoughts. The art is very difficult to interpret but when you pay attention you will truly know what is the purpose for this creative art work.

    2. The art in this piece is hard to follow, but the text however was enjoyable. When I look at this piece my eyes start to hurt but I don’t see it as a bad thing. In fact it’s simply amazing, like an illusion. That’s what I pictured when I read this piece. An Illusion. Another great piece!
