    jread, i agree with you here, its funny how people seem to flock towards anything demonic or evil, yet when it comes to pretty surreal projects, they run and hide, even though these more surreal projects are so much more open ended. Everyone should go and have a look at some Dali art, Max Ernst or possibly even H.Bosch. that'll get their minds flowing.

    yeah its quite strange because when there is a tight brief, alot of people can go quite off topic and 'out-there' but when there is a brief that demands 'out-there' no one joins in...wierd!

    I find it rather depressing
    I giveyou something that isn't a generic castle or Space station and you all go into hiding.

    Its a creative idea that requires a creative solution.

    "City of Artists" was over Thanksgiving. Seriously, if you posted it up to do it again, you'd get more people. Stop thinking it was scary.

    This one isn't frightening, it just requires more detail than most. Even I'm daunted by it little, I'm not the "absurd" type, but I'm still gonna do it if the time can be found. Hopefully everyone else will too.

    Instead of due on Dec. 12rd, you should make it due on Dec. 12surd.

    19 out of 20 people instinctively want to be told what to do. Giving them freedom is anathema to them.

    Or it could just be a combination of LMS/CHOW.

    The later for me, but I might still give it a go if I find the time.

    Hey Chaos, never fear, there are some people that are interested in this topic. I'm still brainstorming, I'll post something when I have something more concrete to show.

    Oh and I should add I do have a concept and some sketches already roughed out. So with any luck I'll have the time to finish the piece. And hopefully others will too.

    Edit: Though I should also warn you I'm interpreting the subject pretty loosely.
