Comfortably Numb by Aegis-Illustration Comfortably Numb by Aegis-Illustration
One of my contributions to Hysterical Minds' 10th release "Symphony", a collection of artworks inspired in music. This time, I decided to represent visually "Comfortably Numb" by Pink Floyd.

We see our world getting rotten and destroyed, but we are already brainwashed by the mass media and all the comforts that capitalism brings to us. We are mere spectators of our own destruction.

Own resources, the rest from sxc and deposit photos.

I favorited this a long time ago, before I even began to listen to Pink Floyd. Funny how now they are my favorite band, and I just realized this was inspired by them, and had to go back and look at it again. Quite an amazing piece.

I can relate to this so much.

I'm a nurse....and I see this going on every day I go to work! If I say anything.....i'm called a radical. People need to be informed and they need to do a lot of research. This work is brillant - we're on the same level!

But radical is a good word, I think! I'm so called that every day as well. We cannot remain silent when this word is going to waste :/

This is probably my favorite photomanipulation of all time, not only because it looks amazing, but because I love the concept behind it. It's thoughtful and very true. Especially I like the pose of his hand, like he's swearing an oath on the remote. 

You're a brilliant artist!

we are spectators to our own destruction, seduced by the comforts capitalism brings. Yet look where those comforts have brought us. a dying system, unsustainable. We will be both the spectators and the instigators of our own destruction.

This picture sums that up nicely. I have to say, I love it.
