Artist : Childish Gambino
ok so this is another experimental piece. the idea is based of
sterotypes about the internet and how we now use social networking
sites to contact people instead of actually meeting up with them
thats why facebook is on the computer screen also the idea of
two people sitting on there laptaps talking to each other
even when there in the same room something that if we keep
communicating over the internet this might happen in the future.
according to certain people ( the perfect example is in the “wall-e” movie )
also the red lines going from the eyes to computer screen
indicates we are more interested on the internet other then
outside and nature and world issues.
also notice how the nature picture in the background
is glitching. and that represents getting visual illutions
from media and how its not really there example the news whats the truth and
whats not….also it represents how the media wants people to look
slim / perfect skin etc…
while the nature picture represents the things i just mentioned
its also there for the obvious reason of the first point i made
the destraction of the internet.
also notice the black squares on and near gambino’s head
i placed a picture of the universe in there this represents both
that knowledge slipping away and also we are made from the
same material as the universe.if you know about kindred spirts and
all in all i wanted the piece to represent stereotypes of the internet
and also a natural feel with the paper textures but i blended
those with the static textures to represent the fact its a screen.( illusion )
maybe you will read this and think thats bullshit or whatever. but that
was the idea and intention behind the piece so take it how it is and
like it if you like it and if you hate it then so be it.
position of all text on the back cover is intentional.
