Guess – how do I read this picture ?


how do I read this face? – broken cubomania pieces of mass media consumption fragmented into appeals desires longings pleas claims values beliefs ideologies cut corners unevenly joined to context and meaning – the gaze the look glamour bewitchment bamboozled by beauty created with magical make-up artistry in light & shadow in the photographer’s lens digitally transformed a kiss from lips revealed cleavage leaves you guessing connecting the dots filling the squares looking for clues circling the words that you try to read between the lines of uncertainty

  1. Perfect as a description of how we’re pattern-seeking organisms, desperate to find meaning and significance in what we observe — even if the interpretation is often slewed or even contrary to the original intentions!

      Many thanks. 🙂 I wanted to deconstruct the advertisement. I used the text to do a media literacy deconstruction that reflects on our pattern-seeking & need to find meaning and provide context to our experiences.
      Presently working on an asemic deconstruction of Pride and Prejudice. I wondered what happens when you reduce print text to mostly punctuation marks. Post when I have something interesting. 😀
