Mixed Media - Handdrawn Digital Illustration Over Photo Background
If This Is Now, What will the Future Bring - Based on one of my poems, this work is a digitally manipulated photo of my son with the words to the poem as for and background. The poems is about the digital age.
Part of my WORD ART Collection; Words are powerful! They can raise one up, to be soaring above the clouds and then instantly bring one down, crashing into the earth like a meteorite. How often do you think about what you say, how you say it and why you chose that wording?
THIS IS NOW, WHAT WILL THE FUTURE BRING - Poem By Joan Stratton 23/2/15
Standing in the doorway,
A face without a book,
A book without a face.
Selfie, selfless, selfish.
Looking out the window,
A sill without a frame,
A frame void of glass.
Program, programmed, programming.
Held in hand and turn a page,
Scroll without a roll,
I, android, robot, without arms or legs.
Pad, padded, paddling.
An invasion but there is no war,
A Trojan horse without Helen,
Spam or a worm without any meat.
Virus, viruses, viral.
Talk but did not speak a word,
Contact without touching,
A letter without the post office.
Mail, mailed, mailing.
Finding but did not go searching,
Know the answer without the studying,
Corruption without a catalyst.
Engine, engines, engineer.
A code that can crack the world,
Malware without a dinner set,
A Host without a party.
Web, webs, webbing.
The Spider searched but was caught in a net,
Crawler without hands and knees.
Online without washing clothes.
Sterile, sterilize, sterilizing.
A virtual world that cannot be seen,
Wired without an electrician,
A dream without an imagination.
Game, gamer, gamming.
Eyes open only to close,
Cyber bully, real bully,
Sex but no sex,
Cold, colder, coldest.
No face, your face,
I cannot read your eyes,
Or your body language,
Isolate, isolated, isolating.
