All right, kids, I've polished the image and re-uploaded it for a momentous occasion: I now have a print account! This image is the first to become available as a print, and I'm going to try to get others ready soon.

EDIT: The good Pitkon has been industrious enough to create a skin, using this piece. Check it out here: [link]

Given 2005-12-22
Reality 1920x1200 by ~pyxelated is a stunning widescreen wallpaper. Dark, grungy and way beyond cool. ( Suggested by jorgehpz and Featured by zilla774 )

Whilst most would put on the goggles of illusion, I prefer the abstraction of reality.

The piece is fantastic, the color you choose gives an amazing post-apocalyptic feeling and the pose reforces the sensation of sumerged in her "reality".How did you choose your colors, by photos or just with the wheel color?

Wtf. The sad part is that this could easily be the future. And worst of all, this could be the future of gaming!
I'm sorry, but I'll be sticking to the old fashioned ways: keyboard; console; nintendo.

This is AMAZING! I love the sort of grungy, shadow-like atmosphere, and the overall bleak, unfettered image shown of what I think (and this is just what I get from it, no offense to anyone else meant, I promise!) is a very sharply-illuminating window into just how far technological reliance has come in recent decades, and that this awesome, yet also terrifying and, in an instinctive level, almost disturbing picture of our potential reality in future years is so refreshingly simple, and yet so eloquent in it's portrayal.....well, it's absolutely fantastic. Also, a bit unnerving. I imagine living life hooked into a virtual reality screen and wires while your bode potentially wastes away in the corner would evoke that sort of feeling with ease.

It simply shows how too many of use are still jacked into the Matrix. How to many are content living miserable lives being drones to corporate society. There is no fate but what we make for ourselves. We are the ones in control of our own lives, yet we are the ones being pushed around like sheep, sheeple, letting entities bully us around. Those Entities will never tell anyone of their true and meaningful purpose, we must free ourselves and find that on our own.

Not to mention being like junkies when it comes to everything technological. It really deteriorates society as a whole when everyone's face is in the palm of their hands, making face-to-face interaction awkward which will become socially unexecptable in the long run.
From Cradle to Grave we are constantly force fed, more like brain-washed, to believe that whatever the newest is is the best. It's all bullshit, they don't care about anything but lining their pockets with the hard earned money you make, that is their business, robbing you through telling you what to wear, eat, play, drive, ect... If you are happy with being a slave, then so be it. I just hope that one day your children wake up, point the finger to the past (which is our present) and asks "why?"

"We do not inherit the earth from our ancesters, we borrow it from our children."

This image really struck a familiar chord and is exactly the kind of world we live in today. Reality is just like the condition of that apartment.
Harsh, bleak, boring, no sense of vibrancy and life found anywhere. The environment is enough to drive anyone to seek escape by any means.
The goggles visually represent that means of escape, which could be video games, movies, any form of media that depicts images of a better and ideal life.
In many ways, we're all looking for something to plug into, any ounce of vitality that can spark some light of hope, even if it was just an illusion, it wouldn't
matter.  Anything that seems lively will attract any moth even if it kills in the process. One can say that it's allot better than what we see around us, and it is so true. The bandage on one foot is but one of many wounds as every step have been painful. The ripped and faded green pants, it's faded color may represent the desire to heal, while the black and white of his shirt and sweater reflects the world as being black and white, torn and devoid of life.

This is a very powerful image and really addresses the kind of reality that many of us even here have experienced. Who could really blame anyone who wants to get lost into a world of second life? There's a moment of feeling hopeless and powerless. We all have the tendency to alleviate our depression the only way we would know how to do it. It is a sentiment that many of us here can relate to. "If only life could be this colorful and lively, if only..."
I think about anime in this case, and how it is so popular with it's incredible colors and soundtrack that really captures our imagination. Overall this is a very powerful art work, well done. ^^
