Building a personal idea about things is always very tiring, Knowledge requires great effort. The media, the network, social networks provide us with an easy and ready truth that we tend to accept without thinking about it. This locks good brains into golden cages and evaporates them from the sea of knowledge. He drags them like balloons in a space managed by no one knows who. "Fatti non foste a viver come bruti ma per seguir virtute e canoscenza" ("You were not made to live like beasts but to follow virtue and knowledge") so the poet Dante made Ulysses say in hell. I think we should reflect on these words.

The image illustrates well the thought of Dante put in the description. A French writer (François Rabelais) had the same idea and expressed it in a different way: "science without conscience is only the ruin of the soul"

Concept well realized and argued, which in addition to Dante summons M.C Escher

And here comes the next phantastic work! Very true, in deed! That's one reason why I stopped watching TV over thirty years ago and there are still enough medias trying to influence us with their "easy truth"...

Great looking image! Too many closed minds, too many lost in a sea of disinformation...

In a way, Dante lived in a "better" world. A least his mind was not washed over constantly by movies, TV, advertisements and what nots. I don't watch TV, I read the news papers (rather the olds paper, when they are printed the news are already old). Not that papers are more honest and true than TV, but I have time to reflect on what I read, go back a paragraph and re-read. TV and radio just flood the brain, there's no time to reflect - it's sort of getting hypnotised. As your artwork shows (to me) we think we have a golden fence around us but forget that it has holes in it - many.

Beautiful, and it must have been a time consuming job for you. The result is splendid. Well done.
