The true story about this picture:
"We were at Disneyland last fall for Halloween season. We knew the Merida meetup was still going on, so for our Halloween party night, my wife made these great costumes for our boys and we sprayed their hair red. They loved it and even chose who was which character.
The meetup was great, Merida handled it perfectly and the boys loved it even though it doesn’t show in this photo. We got a lot of attention in the park, but they soak it up happily and we had a great time.
When we got home, my wife posted this shot to Facebook and one of our friends (thinking it was harmless) posted it to Tumblr where it ended up going Tumblr-viral, getting something like 70,000 reblogs. It got featured on a few websites as well (but nobody ever contacted us, we just found them later on.. oh well)”
I know it’s trendy to fight the system and cry that we are all becoming slaves of technology, but this attitude overlooks that computers and phones are tools for communicating. When someone thinks I’m an idiot smiling at a machine, I’m actually smiling at my girlfriend who is 10000 miles away and whom I would have never met if not for these newfangled electronics. As they say: when the wise man points to the moon, the fool looks at the finger.
This is a topic that I’ve been wanting to tackle for a while now; much credit to this excellent post for bringing it to the front of my brain.
This is my last show piece of the year (its actually for a show next year- but you know what i mean), Neve is for the upcoming Supersonic Electronic Invitational 3 ( #SE3 ) curated by Zach Tutor at Spoke Art Gallery in San Francisco, CA. SE3 starts Jan 9th and im really honored to be a part of this great show- rubbing shoulders with some incredible talent!
