Classical Records

The dancer suffers the most. Bearing the burden of philosophy. All pain turns into beauty within a single step, a true mode of freedom. A constant work machine. The city builds consistently upon one's back...brick by brick...always watching. Do you take the time to look...or just tuck the images away? Art in any form isn't meant to collect dust on a shelf.

Do you listen to your classical records any more?
Or do you let them sleep in their sleeves, where they be?
Do you suffer through those records that you turned around?
Or do you make them sleep in their sleeves where they weep?

Vinyl tears

I had a line but I don't remember
I had a time but I don't remember
I had a line but I don't remember

This is gorgeous... I adore how intricate the piece is and how the dark, neutral tones emphasize the meaning behind the work. Wonderful job.

This reminds me of "Harrison Bergeron" by Kurt Vonnegut. Beautiful work.
