The sky above the port was the color of television, tuned to a dead channel. The Chatsubo was a bar for professional expatriates; you could drink there for a week and never hear two words in Japanese. Ratz was tending bar, his prosthetic arm jerking monotonously as he filled a tray of glasses with draft Kirin. He saw Case and smiled… - William Gibson – Neuromancer Okay. The Japanese is bad, call it deliberate. This is an ex-pats bar and well, Ratz – He don’t care much if his sign reads wrong in Japanese. ;)

From the series “The color of memory”, oil on paper: These works come from some thoughts about classical sculpture. We know that the sculptures were originally colorful, and that the Egyptian, Greek, and Roman cultures, but also the pre-Columbian cultures, favored, to decorate them, very bright colors. But the passage of time has given us these sculptures predominantly white, so, from the Renaissance until today, the sculptural representation of man is almost always monochrome. And it is interesting to think that if by some historical accident, the same thing had happened with painting, today we would paint with one color, and we would find it quite natural, just as the monochrome sculptures seem entirely correct. Obviously this reasoning should be much more complex, but for me it was only the starting point for a reflection on the way we perceive reality, and what is that influences it. Looking for an expedient that makes it look colorful something that is not.

Society fights many battles behind their social media handles. But one must beg to ask; Does getting anyone removed from social media really deter undesired behavior? Is getting someone fired from their job over an online argument, justice? How often would the actions of others go unnoticed if there were LESS social media? Do our efforts to thwart evil online exceed any further than 1's and 0's? Does a stricter policy online help to alleviate issues in real life? Or is it all just, Social Media Justice?

Damn those artificial life-forms! Escaping their work detail and unhappy with their limited lifespan, come to Earth to find a loophole. Talk about ungrateful for the existence they’ve been given. Trouble is, these things pack a serious punch, and capturing them or making sure they do minimal harm before they expire ain’t gonna be easy.
