sidhartha, color notwithstanding, your piece reminds me of my all-time favorite piece of art , Picasso's Guernica.
I am interested, you say it ultimately became a poster...commissioned for a specific purpose?
The duplication certainly is a fantastic maze, trippy indeed. But unless I needed to use it as a tapestry (to wrap around a volkswagen bus or something) I probably wouldn't...It's a work that is an awful lot to digest in the original let alone with a twin. Don't get me wrong, I really enjoy this I am just not sure I would have any reason to do this mirror thing...the original stands so well on its own.
I looked up the image you referred to by Picasso. Thanks! I feel honored by such a comment. I am familiar with that image. I have probably observed it many times during my life while looking thru books that display the works of great artists.
As per your observation regarding the blending together of the mirror image .... hmmm .... I am starting to wonder if there is a viable application for what is becoming known as "digital wall paper". A friend at work purchased the poster representation. The people I work with are High-End and High-Talented computer analyst from India. They tend to like things that are a combination of organic/technical/geometric and busy in nature.
I agree with you regarding the fact that the original stands well enough alone. But the advent of computer graphics opens a door of unlimited possibilities. The trick, in my opinion, is to use the computer to create something that is contains aspects of the original work but enhanced in a subtle manner. I personally do not get anything from purely digital art.
