GUEST,Sam Pirt BS: Banned on 2 sites...going for 3 (22) RE: BS: Banned on 2 sites...going for 3 24 Oct 01

An interesting picture and an even more interesting title. To be honest I think that the title is a casualty of the current world situation and an attempt at 'Shock'. I say this because of the thread title 'Banned on 2 sites..going for a third' This shows you know what you are doing and want to 'shock people'. This could be because you want people to think about what is going on, and rightly so. If this works it is a success.

For me though there is nothing I can relate to in the art work. The picture is well done and but is quite dark and evil and the title is also this. And looks like a decaying moon. To be honest I was expecting something completely opposite from the title, like a worn out childs toy etc..

What I am saying is that the art of 'shock' I think lies not just in the title but in the title and artwork. The picture felt to impersonal and the title made me feel the artist had tried to hard to shock me, which made me dismiss it.

Listen I have gone in to depth about its first impressions on me but don't get me wrong its a good picture just watch the old 'shock' tactics. Oh and I wouldn't ban it!!

Cheers, Sam
