Pfft. We are numbers. We are a series. We are not individuals, we are components. And if a watch component fails to operate correctly, it will be cast aside and replaced with a more cooperative piece. And if the watch fails to function, it will be stripped apart and recycled as part of a better watch. But better for whom?


We are all invisible. Lives are lost, ruined, destroyed, oppressed every day and no one notices or remembers. Young, old, innocent, wicked. We all have our place in the grand scheme, but the grand scheme doesn't serve us all. This artist feels invisible because the government gives him no value as an individual. That's the way of the world. When any of us looks at the world, we miss the trees for the forest.

This is nothing new. Just another artist who paints himself in a way to which he blends in to the background. If you want invisibility look at the new cloak the European government is experimenting with.

That invisibility cloak that bends light around the wearer, now that's where it's at

While it may be "nothing new" it's still damned cool IMHO.

Thanks for sharing, OP!
