Silentium

Live in your inner self alone,
Within your soul a world has grown,
The magic of veiled thoughts that might
Be blinded by the outer light,
Drowned in the noise of day, unheard...
Take in their song and speak no word.

- Fyodor Tyutchev (trans. Vladimir Nabokov)

Daily Deviation

Given 2005-07-05
Art of Vocal Communication by *myownself Admittedly, I have some type of A.D.D. For something to hold my attention -- much less something on the internet -- for more than few seconds ... it makes me wonder. There are a lot of self-portrait artists. Not many are very good. This deviant is very good. And this photo reminds me of something I just can't put my finger on. Art is not chaste. ( Featured by cweeks )

çok başarılı bir iş , yeni dünya düzeni ve bunun yanında kapitalizmn değişime uğrattığı küre, de her biçimde yeniden varoluşum mümkün kılınmıştır, beden insana ait değildir , beden tanırınında değildir ! beden aslında varoluşsal bir iluzyondan ibarettir,tı;pkı şimdiki similasyon çağında olduğu gibi. nasıl ekranlaradan milyarlarca insan birbirine ulaşabiliyor ise ve ve bizler ekrana entegre ettiğimiz birey kodunu , ruhda beden için entegre etmiştir., çalışmanı oldukça beğendim, ingilizce yazmak isterdima ama üzgünüm , kolay gelsin

I am not going to lie, at first I thought it was ugly, and a cheesy rendition of a statement against abortion

but then I realised its shocking, disgusting and yet mindful and beautiful at the same moment.
The symbolism really stands out, the raw decripid look of the painting in the background really adds to the rude grotesque feeling this beautiful piece emits. It is a powerful piece, and I am happy to have found it.

cheesy, chintzy, crude, distasteful, flat, flavorless, inelegant, naff, savorless, scabrous, tacky, tasteless, tawdry, unflavored, unsavory, vulgar... just tawdry!

A very nice change from all of the anime stuff thats always on the front page. I mean I love and draw anime, but all the anime is beginning to look the same and have nothing unique about them really. This is a very nice eye opener!
