Well, I was lying in my bed watching Hogans Heros, andwine episode where Hogan was teaching the prisoners Russian came on. After watching Hetalia and my mom showing me countless Grumpy Cat pictures that entire day, this popped into my mind and I just couldn't help myself.
For those of you waiting for my next installment of my ReaderxCountry, don't worry I've been hard at work. Actually, I'll be updating all three of them tomorrow.
These were part of the 2006 Artworks postcard project I was working on. I got them finished, Yay! Though 'tis a secret project, so we couldn't sign the fronts of them. They were donated to the Artworks gallery, who sold them for charity. The proceeds benefit young artists in the Cincinnati Area. All postcards sell at a flat rate of $75 US each.
UPDATE! The white maneki neko was chosen as one of the top one hundred entries in the 2006 Secret Artworks project.
It was published in a paperback collection of the works called Exposed. Info on the book and project is here: [link]
Materials used are various art cardstocks and washi papers. The eyes have Swarovski crystals and the bells are real. The size of each card is 4" x 6"
"Dac-am trai intr-o lume plata, intr-un plan fara limite din care n-ar putea scapa nimic in afara, a treia dimensiune ar fi de neimaginat pentru creierele noastre de hartie. Personajele dintr-o poza sunt tepene si incremenite pentru ca mintea lor nu e destul de complexa ca sa le faca sa traiasca. Ii lipsesc pentru asta doua dimensiuni: adancimea si timpul. Acestea ar putea exista (si exista) chiar in proximitatea lor, fara ca ele sa le poata percepe, caci tot ce interfereaza cu o lume, venind din afara ei, e reinterpretat in datele acelei lumi." Orbitor Mircea Cartarescu
"If we live in a flat world, in an unlimited plan which could not escape anything but the third dimension would be unimaginable for our brains paper. A picture characters are stiff and petrified because their mind is not complex enough to make them live. for it lacks two dimensions: depth and time. It could exist (and there) even in their proximity, without that they can recognize, for all that interferes with the world, coming from outside, data is reinterpreted in that world. " Mircea Cartarescu
