yep, the order of replies is a bit screwed up : )

Maybe he was bringing to life, your levels of understanding ?

Hey-(required), I know that. When I replied to my own comment, I thought it also pushed up the quote level of Bazza's comment. It turns out it's just my eyes going bad.

Hey - Just Sayin. You can type in the "Your opinion" box, or click on "reply to this" each time for your comment. That's why your first two replies are indented, but your third isn't.

Weird. Replying to my message above seems to have somehow changed where the reply by Bazza is listed. Bazza's note was actually posted in response to Sexy Beast, it wasn't an answer to my post. That's kind of confusing...

Let me edit my above comment to note that I didn't look for the date of the original print (1963) when I wrote the above note. That means that the image predates 'emo' by only around 42 years. I didn't want my unintentional oversight to overshadow the meaning of the message I posted above.

Art is emotion. Interpretation of artistic meaning only comes from individual perspective. If you don't like this image, maybe you should examine why you are bothered by what you see in the picture rather than complaining how its presence here creates an 'emo' atmosphere. Personally, I see the image as a tour-de-force of Twentieth Century artistic skill; created by perhaps the best lithographer ever of fantastic, impossible worlds, M. C. Escher. As this particular image predates the idea of 'emo' by about seventy years, if it the artist intended this image to have meaning at all, it would be more likely to be a criticism of communism, but never having had the chance to ask him myself, I can only speculate what was his intent. This image was also hand engraved in metal, using real tools and an incredible amount of dexterity and skill, it wasn't just knocked out using some graphical art creation program such as photoshop; a profound amount of artistic skill was needed to create this work. Perhaps that is what makes you feel uncomfortable when you view the image?

I like the picture.....I like the idea behind the mobius strip...I like to try to say something/anything when I post a picture. You dont have to look at the picture or take any notice of the words, thats your choice. "this place" is the sum of all the parts...the pictures, the labels and the comments.. Thankyou for your contribution, have a nice day : )

Is this supposed to be profound? How emo can this place get?
