hmmmm, i live in the US and although i find that it has a great many flaws i don't understand how this relates to it unless it is not stating the country but perhaps the state of minds or state of matter.
Well played at spurring debate to make this piece more known, human nature at its finest.
It seems like the two are "United", like a sort of two people with a shared mind creating things for the greater good. They are both in a tranquil "State" representing their thinking, peace, and love for one another - or perhaps everything around them.
Knowledge seems to be a key thing being demonstrated in this piece and as for the water based background, that could be representing how America is able to fight on any battlefield or come to the aid of anyone that needs it.
The picture can be interpreted in all sorts of ways, either negative or positive depending on the person. I took it on a positive note towards the Untied States.
Like we're the only country that's influenced by technology... (comment extrapolated from the geometric shapes, the chat bubble, their skin reminding me of like, glowing code from the matrix. I could be completely off on this interpretation. But then you shouldn't title your art UNITED STATES and not expect to get a bit of criticism from it.) God, people are so judgmental today.
The biggest difference between Europe and the States is that we have the proper infrastructure to have way more convenience than we need. And we're all materialistic and will work late hours instead of going home to our families. But if you're single you don't have a family anyway the money is more worth your time than sitting at home alone.
On another note I'm detecting an aquatic theme from this piece and most states are landlocked so I really don't get that.
yeah yeah I know. I'm just proud of my country and I'm not sure what the artist is trying to say with this piece (I mean he didn't say anything about it so it's open to interpretation, so since it's very unusual and titled UNITED STATES I've taken a defensive stance towards it). Yeah there are some things f'ed up about America but I'm annoyed with stereotypes. We're not all fat, fast food sells just as well here, and we know about as much history as everyone else, just different kinds sometimes.
Anyway my point is that this picture makes it seem like America is "weird" or soulless (lack of eyes) or dead (lack of eyes) or something and I wouldn't think of those as good terms. Accepting of the weird? okay that's alright. But like, there's no way to know what the artist was thinking when she/he named this piece.
And what I mean by proper infrastructure does not mean that we're richer, it means our cities were built more recently so we can have grid-shaped roads instead of all these curvy ones constantly altering in height as well. So it's a lot easier to get around. You can't just tear down hundreds-of-years-old houses with many people living in them just so you can build a straight road here.
When you're all done thanking people for the DD (Congrats!) could you tell me a little bit about what's going on in this very mysterious piece? Truly, I love mystery, but I too have some rather 'dismal' thoughts about what used to be "Our Country..." Please...I'm curious to know your thoughts. Excellent piece... dick g
Well, after all, I did write in BOLD face. How many others do that? THAT"S GOTTA COUNT FOR SOMETHING! How the hell was I supposed to know you required FULL CAPS AS WELL??? Sheese!.... WHAT IS YOUR DAILY DEVIATION ALL ABOUT? I'M JUST CURIOUS! THANKS... rcg
