Dandelion Idea by Caen-N Dandelion Idea by Caen-N
Dandelion Idea,
Dandelion inside a light-bulb.

My series of Ideas is a social commentary on societies “throw away culture”.
The Edison light globe is a dead technology but one that had a massive impact on the world, with most of the evidence of this invention being simply trashed and replaced.

Please be aware though this is a photo, it is a photo of the artwork, I am not a photographer; I am a conceptual artist.

Yes, you may share my work but please always credit me.

This is really great! It makes an unnatural thing (light bulb) look like it fits in with nature. Strange how that worked..

That's interesting. Not sure I think the "social commentary" part of it comes through, though. Maybe that's just because most photography is only here to be interesting, it sets a different context?

I think that they're all superbly photographed, for sure, but the "throwaway culture" vibe isn't there. I'm sure it'd come off more with something that's viewed culturally being used as trash, rather than just a light bulb being used to represent decay and recycled ideas.

ok yeah, i see what your saying...
but i like my art to be open to the interpretation each individual view sees as well as what i put in. So i'm glad your happy to discuss it :)

I like the idea...it's a clever image. I'm still trying to figure out how the throwaway lightbulb relates to the dandelion...

but maybe they are two separate metaphors just put together... or maybe not...
