how does a strawberry bubble-gum feel when he’s going to be bitted by cuted-out and blurred children… what whould it view from its package?
that certainly is question
I’ve been waiting for years to use this postcard.
wtf is this dsnlg about?
i think it’s about candy. i don’t think there’s anything deeper to it than that…
i think it’s suposed to be about how candy feels about being munched on
I feel it just as candy related situations/landscapes. The only common is “candy” and the rest is in the air. Isn’t it nerd? So that can be so deep as we want… that could be just a few deep or really deep. That’s the mission of this conversation, to explore candy sides…
I don’t know if you get reruns of “That 70s Show” in Barcelona, xavi, but there’s one character — the foreign exchange student from a generic Spanish speaking South American country — who is obsessed with candy.
So every time I think about this dsnlg, I hear Fez saying “Mmmm, candy.”
And then the “I Taste Just Like Candy” song gets stuck in my head…
Though we can definitely move into the candy-coated views of life aspect…
The best designlogues are both visually cohesive and conceptually provocative.
If a person chooses to create a response that is more os a visual exercise (like this one) then I think the aesthetic cohesiveness between the initiator’s and conspirator’s images should be greater. So while the dialogue in this latest entry is really funny, I think the image loses something in throwing the style of the previous design out with the bath-water. (Or whatever kind of liquid those M&M’s are falling into… that one does look rather horrified)
Rev, you’re so right.
I guess the way I was relating this to the last piece in my head is from how xavi annotated it - what does a candy think as it’s about to be eaten? Maybe there’s a whole philosophical and religious anarchy in the world of sweets.
But depicting “i’m going to be eaten some day” doesn’t seem like a topic that’ll last for a whole dsnlg.
I can’t wait to see how xavi reframes it…
Sorry for time delay I’ts coming soon nerdartis!
Nerd & people, I’m really, really really really really sorry for time delay. I’ve been really (teally really really) busy lastly and I’d no time enough to do everything. But here we have an answer.
m&m’s growing from a windows XP candy-like landsacape.
I hope we will take a fun direction! :-p
but the legs are a bit stumpy…I know you were trying to make them look like they were buried in the tongue…uh…papillae?
am I wrong on the tongue? are we not in someone’s mouth?
is this just some tripped out field? what am I doing here?
thadwiddle, that is some find!
I know you’re all eager with anticipation, but I’m moving, so I won’t be getting to this for a few weeks. Sorry xavi :(
that’s a pretty nice site for less then ten pieces of art.
