Unintended - Alderdom by necron Unintended - Alderdom by necron
Unintended - Time takes it`s toll

Taken from breed`s latest installment, 12.

This piece has a story, a long one.

I started working on this ages ago, i first shot the initial core photographs early summer 2001. From there i started working on it, but never really feeling quite satisfied with how it turned out.

So time went by, and i looked at it and changed it around countless times, never seeming to finish it at all. But today, when i woke up, i sat down infront of my computer, and strangely, everything seemed to work out perfectly. So i worked with it on and off through-out the day, and now it`s finished, at least in my eyes.

So i beg you not to give any so-called
"constructive comments" here. I am not going to change it, because it`s a personal piece of art, and to have other people influence it would go against the very nature of the artwork itself.

This is the weirdest piece i have ever worked on, so i have no idea how people will interperate this. Since it`s been in the works for so long, i cannot remember where the inspiration ever came from, because it was always present when i was working on it. I just hope you can see it as i do, something out of the ordinary.

(Alderdom is norwegian for aging, or somewhere in that feild. It`s a hard language, so translations are killing me)

lovin the typography here, wish i knew the language. From what i can see though, it does give an excellent aged feel, top notch man, i'd have to say this is one of my favorites from you, infact, I'm going to add it to my favorites.

good use of elements here and those rough imagery adds a great touch to this latest piece. nice color scheme, kind of post apocalyptic.

me feels like seing the chaotc side of him in a mirror, i see the street where evrybody is nobod.y. I see the agression of our cities. I feel urban noise and agression i feel my identity fading away.
i see my problem with the concept of identity.

Damn this work is really introspective and i understand what you meant by the personal view of the artist this is DEEEEEEP

wow, now that is definitely an interesting photo manip piece. A very different attitude than most but I like it just the same. Very original work!

gottmacher Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2002
hmmm... very interesting. I'm not quite sure what else I can say about it. It has a definate emotion behind it. Some fear of time's progression... but beyond that, I can't say just what it is I'm feeling here.

I guess it reminds me a bit of the feeling of dread I sometimes get when I wake up in the middle of the night for no reason.

Very good work, my friend. Keep it up.
