Theme of the painting – Geometry of the Past
What does it mean being inspired by the figure of the past? In truth, from Ideasrex’s perspective, it means that the pattern created and saved for so many centuries as Mona Lisa was, created sufficient material in the consciousness of the one imagining that same past, that it compelled the appropriation. It is one of the most frequently appropriated pieces in history; however, we are still guessing at the mystery that Leonardo Da Vinci was. A genius with so many talents, but not any talents living in their passivity; those were utilized and crystallised talents, which opened whole worlds. He didn’t have live with the surrounding; he created his own and his mind build such a thick layer of inventions that he didn’t even have to look outside when in most cases, people’s mind consciousness regarded outside as all there is. Coexistence of survival of that period largely depended on assessing the outside environment, the alliances to the right (stronger and therefore winning) leader. Yet amidst all of this Mona Lisa seems to be mysteriously smiling, with the look of superiority; it is a look from the future, that everything will turn out right. It is the Asian look as well because as a species we took and will take even more genetics from that part of the world. However, the geometry that formed the trends, and shadows that destroyed them and created new ones are also present in this version. The past is not only the dot that we see, but also the moment when it is changing from one dot to another, it is geometrical in progression, but the movement is difficult to see from one point to another, as it is usually fluid.
Charlie: Past has to be observed and the patterns found therein are invaluable to the future generations. A civilisation that doesn’t track it’s changes, trends and appearance and disappearances of memes is unable to build complexities which may look simple from the outside. Earling: Thanks to visual records, the ability to write, the paper and the stones that managed to resist the destructive forces of Humans, wars, natural cataclysms, and even most importantly dogmas that opposed what was written, helped us imagine what the past might have been like. In the previous century we expanded this records to auditive, but that technology was mostly focused on music – as entertainment. The real oral traditions that might have been caught on tape, were caught only in the Academic sterile circles.
