views on materialism?!

Postby lorenzo_pickle » Tue Apr 22, 2008 12:55 pm

I've just stumbled across this rather interesting looking little outfit on the internet whilst attempting to do some research for my project for my art diploma.
I was just interested to get some responses.... very vague I know but I'm creating an instillation under the title 'struggling in the waters of materialism' (which is taken from a William Blake painting 1794) and I'd very much like to get lots of different written responses to the above title... thats if anyone has a spare few minutes to conjure something up! muchos thanks, Lauren

The painting seems to depict someone floundering, emersed and slowly integrating with matter itself.
People generally see themSELVES as being of a material nature, or, physical, so is it so surprising that there is so much materialism in the world.
Is there even a crucifixion aspect to this painting? Are these nail marks on the feet?
Consumed by material things. Losing our minds therefore.
Body consciousness.
Chaos. :shock: :cry:
