Giles Denmark performing and being manipulated to be Auguste Rodin's Sculpture
of the Spear Holder representing the Age of Bronze
Rodin's Age of Bronze is a young man, vibrant in the revolutions of the industrial age. How we want that youth, that vibrancy, that naivete of creating a new world. Television and computer present a world of fantasies, pleasures, some real, some not. The choice is ours. We can be innocent of seeing everything as objects, even ourselves. Ideas, new events, the design of a newsletter become of equal importance. Many spend the majority of their waking hours in this object orientated space, losing their spirit, their selves. The digital revolution can be the wake from sleep, but we have be sure the waking is not a dream.
