The Flying Pig
For recognition of a fine example of photography used to create fine art.

I'm calling this a tone poem, & defining it this way: A digital tone poem combines multiple digital images in a single continuous selection (as in a symphonic movement) in which an idea or thought is evoked. In its aesthetic objectives, the graphic tone poem seeks a union of emotion and intellect.

Merriam-Webster offers this definition of entropy: 'the degradation of the matter and energy in the universe to an ultimate state of inert uniformity." There is only one thing that can slow down this degradation--the occasional work of art that lights a spark & heats a few things up again.

At first glance, my brain perceived this as upside down because of the bird in the blue sky, standing out among the hot sun colors. Then, my brain found the other sky, causing me a little moment of vertigo, which I found entertaining. The same thing happens when I look at the 'roof' on the structure on the R--it looks like a roof, but also like a boardwalk.

This is not a representation of reality as we know it or fantasize it, though recognizable bits of representational reality have been taken out of context & used to create it. Leading lines in the architectural elements imply single-point perspectives, creating & supporting the illusion of space in this collage of saturated color. You could hang this on the wall for the color alone, or to snag the attention of anyone walking by, to encourage lingering & thinking. I lingered quite a while.

Nice use of the "desert southwestern" color palette. One of the most interesting of the bunch.
