post apocalyptic yet gentle by nature

the picture glorifies the act of the thinking outside the box with a magnificent thrust through the polluted air of corporate idealism. simply genius. i applaud you young sir.

this is exactly the kind of subtle protest art we need in this post-9/11 (US), accelerated industrial age (China), globalized, dumbed down, soma'd out, 1984 world of ours.
superb

towards the light

amidst the tainted haze of the industrial age, there is a light at the end that the corporate world may try to cloud..when you think outside the box and let go, that initial leap of faith towards the light allows you to break free and take flight beyond their smoke and mirrors extremely moving and motivational...masterfully done

It's such an innocent, wonderful picture, I immediately felt there was a song there.

Double Take

I thought that it was just mangled cardboard at first glance that exemplified the result of an explosion from "bursting out" from the light in the center to think outside the box. However, upon a second viewing I realized that these boxes carried a set of wings, which give each of the boxes a more deliberate motion and perhaps even a will of its own. It really is a testament to the creator when the caption and picture, while so simple, can elicit so many different interepretations during different viewings of the same piece.
hooray for capitalism

I feel the picture does a superb job expressing the constant competition in capitalism

Brilliantly illustrates Friedman's argument of how globalization has commodotized the left-brain dominated world and innovation is America's key to success.
nice

fly boxes, fly!
By jlin23 on Wednesday, 21 November 2007 12:56 AM
ironic that a box could think outside itself
cool beans
By usertemp on Wednesday, 21 November 2007 2:55 AM
Hey, I enjoyed the play on words with "consumed" as in they box in what the consumers buy from the corporations and at the same time, they are necessary for the corporate word to continue functioning. Cheers!

Good skill, great idea. It looks beautiful.
50+ votes in no time.
By JodyMitoma on Thursday, 22 November 2007 3:18 AM
It's funny how this is the third entry I see that goes from having barely any votes... to an additional 50+ in a matter of a couple hours.
By nomoson on Thursday, 22 November 2007 3:35 AM
Funny how you can't see talent when it's right in front of your face.
A+
By schim on Thursday, 22 November 2007 4:26 AM

RE: nomoson
By JodyMitoma on Thursday, 22 November 2007 3:37 PM
No where did I ever say that this artist wasn't talented. This is in fact quite a marvelous piece.

Don't assume.

There's no way this thing can possibly get that many votes in a matter of a few minutes. I call hit and run. Check local IPs on the pictures to see if the come from the same area. I smell some serious CHEATING
Yeah!
By glimm on Thursday, 22 November 2007 8:33 PM
Sooo much better!
Finally
By cnico88 on Friday, 23 November 2007 2:45 AM
someone put this cheater to justice. Let the people that work hard earn the prize, not some wanna be haxor.
Excellent work
By franco53 on Friday, 23 November 2007 7:09 AM
Everyone has their own critics, but I think this piece is PHENOMENAL. Let all the other critics name-call all they want. It's because they have nothing bad to say about this piece that they have to go as low as to attack the artist who most likely isn't the one voting for himself in the first place.
By 3dcreativesolutions on Friday, 23 November 2007 2:55 PM
Hmm... Let's break this down a little....

PHENOMENON: highly extraordinary or prodigious

EXTRAORDINARY: exceptional in character, amount, extent, degree, etc.; noteworthy; remarkable

PODIGIOUS: wonderful or marvelous

These words have been used to describe the theory of relativity, quantum physics, even the Northern Lights... and possibly even break throughs in certain artistic styles such as cubism or mind-bending surrealistic pieces from the Greats. I'm sorry to say, none of the words above describe "smokey bat-box". Just no way.
art
By uclaart on Saturday, 24 November 2007 2:11 AM
maybe you should get away from your 3d creative solutions with maya or c4d and take an art history class because the fact that you mention breakthroughs of quantum physics and the northern lights with cubism is very peculiar. Cubism was highly influenced from basic shapes and forms of african cultures. What made it such a breakthrough was its thoughts, ideas and symbols inside of the painting; telling a story from a different perspective. Judging what's good and bad or what's art and what's not art is exactly why there was a dada movement. No one cares what YOU think or the people around you think. All I care about is what i see in this piece and how i react to it. Everyone's allowed to have their own interpretation and that's what matters about art. Nonetheless this isn't the best art i've seen but the concept i do enjoy. The funny thing is that his idea and concept seems to be about people being stuck in the past and thinking one dimensional.

AGAIN FOR THE ADMIN!!!!There's no way this thing can possibly get that many votes in a matter of a few minutes. I call hit and run. Check local IPs on the pictures to see if the come from the same area. I smell some serious CHEATING
Good points
By 3dcreativesolutions on Monday, 26 November 2007 4:01 PM
As far as my noted items like cubism and quantum physics being true break throughs and such, yes I was being sarcastic. And personally, I think most cubism isn't very good anyway. Just because something has a thoughtful definition, doesn't mean it's automatically good or thought provoking when it follows suit. I appreciate your comments and I have nothing personal against this entry. I just think the waterfall of support and 180+ votes was a little ridiculous. At any rate, this competition is and continues to be pretty fun. Keep it up and good luck to all.
