I'm surprised there are so few comments...this is very interesting conceptually.

Thanks Joline - I was hoping for more comments and feedback on what people made of the concept, but maybe this is more of a niche market.

I'm impressed by Cor's modification too, the original piece is an interesting idea and is well-worked. I'm not too sure about the background colour scheme, it doesn't seem to fit the tag words too well - a bit too warm and positive... Dave

I get you point and I can see it now.

The orginal concept was to do with the a perspective of our own life in our circumstances while the rest of the world seems to be getting on better - hence the warmer colour - but the beauty of this kind of work is that it can mean so many different things.

Thanks for the feedback Dave.

I think this is an excellent idea but I'm not quite sure what you're trying to say. The girl's obviously unhappy but it's unclear whether the building represents the city she's trapped in (`City is bad') or an old-fashioned place that she wants to escape from and live in a modern city (`city is good').

I agree that some ambiguity can be a good thing but it's usually ambiguities about the details rather than the central theme. `She hates the city — but can she live without its conveniences?' is one thing but, here, you're trying to express an opinion about cities and I can't even tell if it's pro or anti.

Its the old chestnut - do I tell you what it means to me or I am trying to say or do I let it speak to you in the way that personal to you alone.

I prefer the latter, today.

Thanks for your comment and feedback
