    Look for shapes, lines, and compositional elements that the two pictures have in common. For example, the two-by-two panel grid on the back wall of the left picture is repeated in the boxes in the right picture.

    In both pictures no one is really interacting with anyone else. The second picture solidifies the feeling of isolation of the first by holding a box symbolising the isolation of the Id.

    Is that enough clap-trap?


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    You forgot to mention the inherent dualism of the juxtaposition of organic and inorganic forms in both images, symbolizing the tyranny of thought as an inherent condition of post-industrial feminism.

    I would stress the tension between different genders, built through supporting or being supported by box-like structures, symbolising the safety of the maternal womb. As an added bonus, the ubiquitious cross-shaped themes suggest a strong religious frustration, nurtured in the perpetual suppression of female sexuality in a society where freedom of empathy is no longer taken for granted. The strong verticals emphasize a dominant Freudian phallic predisposition, where the individual submits to the lusts of an archetypical deity, subtly stressing the ties of an otherwise maternal society, where the Id is no longer able to hide. The multitude of Golden-Dawnian sigilism cf. Regardie, as well as sheer Bardonian elemental algorithms, framed around a forceful thematic underpinning of nondeterminist polynomial completeness, massaged by the texture of social Darwinism, makes these pictures a powerful tuplization in the sublimation of art througout scientific hierarchical, albeit discrete, structuralisations.

    The four main people in each scene represent four isolated ‘windows-of-the-world’ from the perspective of the world ‘Box’ that they conform to from within and carry around with them from without.

    Just shootin’ from the hip. Blind folded.

    The weighted companion cubes must be euthanized before we can continue. This makes the lady very sad.

    I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).

    The first picture takes place inside the box in the second picture.

    Well see the first one is a school. Notice the unhappy faces. They're being pumped with the same information that everyone in those confined walls does. But the 2nd picture. It's a bunch of people outside, no walls. Literally thinking, outside the box.



    ...... .......... ......... Ok I can't do it anymore. Makes me laugh that people actually have to analyze this shit.

    And the universe inside all the boxes is in a state of simultaneous existence and nonexistence until you open any box.

    At which point it collapses into one state or the other.

    Kind of like this site. If you check in at the wrong time, it collapses into a state of nonexistence.

    To add another layer of connection, let’s couple the OP’s request for help to the connection between the two pictures. Maybe it would go something like…

    Coercing others to do your homework for you will result in your standing out in the cold, toting an education not worth the box it came in.
