A short film I stumbled across in photography forums I frequent. I guess it's a meditation
on architecture and arts' relation to architecture supposedly done mostly with CGI based on real world
objects, places, things. It runs 13 minutes and I recommend turning off the lights and running it
full-screen. I don't quite know what it's all about. I just keep watching it but I'm wired funny. [Razz]

maybe I am daft, but I don't like it, sorry.

Art, to me is about comunication. of f an idea, a feeling, an exprience, something. Now, maybe the people who made that film where trying to comunicate something, but they weren't doing it well at all, so I don't liek it.

Now, I must admit, there is the posibility that they are comunicating some deep idea, but I doubt it. When I watch shakespeare, I don't get everythign the first time, and you watch it again and you see something new, somethign deeper. and these modern artists think if they do somethign crazy, they are being deep like shakespeare, because people don't get it.

BUT, BUT, BUT, with shakespeare, you will eventually get it. With these modern artists, it is always just a swirl of fancy colors, meaning nothing, and rather shallow.
