    Hey, thanks for the comments fellas.
    To theyellowfury: the concept behind this piece was just representing the need within human nature to divine truth, the future, etc. I tried to include a few sundry devices used for that purpose that also have different meanings/representations or uses (to show the potentialities and variables in human thoughts as well as desires), and then countrasted that with the newsprint collage in order to show how words stated, even as prophetic, but words nonetheless, become the past, which is a piece of the former present….
    In other words, we dig for truth throughout our lives and therefore throughout time, although time is relative.
    In the end I’m not saying anything definitive aside from the fact that human nature is a funny, fickle, and furtive thing. We’ll try to know, regardless, and that’s the point.

    Profound and able to be interpreted in many way – I really agree with your sentiments on the human need to understand the meaning of life… everything – also – very artistically pleasing to view
