The Artfish : Forgive and forget (Tempus Fugit)

Forgive and forget or Tempus Fugit
ORIGINAL IMAGE capture by Cecelia Levee.  This photo was edited for the SL Picture•Pile•Ups group.
In making art, D is always shadowed by a sense of futility ie. "Does anyone get what I am trying to say" and " Is what I am saying, worth saying at all…" It's quite an interesting state of ennui, which D likens to being like purgatory for attention seekers.

Beauty (and art) is in the eye of the beholder - so here in the continuance of this blah is all about why D made it this way. 

However, for arts' sake this image should be regarded just like song lyrics.
Sing how you like and what sounds good in your ear even if the original song writing does not really contain your lyrics. 

What you think it says or more so.. what it says to you is always tons better!

D's Artistic Statement
In my off-line work, I've always found an affinity for working with found objects and my interests in the creative process had long since moved off canvas. Thus coming across flickr 'pile-ups' is very tantalising for its virtual equivalence.

I've always been fascinated by the idea of a containment of and for 'art' as well as for visual language. 
This piece embodies my pet subjects on many different levels in terms of the history of its origins as a question about reality, continuity and decay.
