ArtPolitic - Just Add People by n0deal ArtPolitic - Just Add People by n0deal
The theory is that the amount of people you add to any situation or group is directly proportional to how fucked up it is going to get. It's clear to see that even within our community.

What do you think? ...or do you?

I agree completely. All theories seem to fall short when it comes to the will and self-interest of the individual. >.<

Hmm. I've never thought of it that way. Although I am in total agreeance. This is a great peice. Not only does it have a great message, but the artwork looks great too.

(i'm terribly sorry to be commenting on all of these pieces you have, but they interest me too much not to say anything :p )

it's so true. it's why i have problems with big corporations opposed to small owned business's. it's why i can deal with two people in my study hall opposed to twenty. it's why i can deal with my community's ignorance, but not my country's. argh.

the proposition presumes-
ALL the members of the group are independent thinkers, having their own ideas and views about any situation or event.The they disagree and ruin the situation.
This premise may not be valid.There is always a mix of leaders and followers by simple law of averages and co-ordinated response can occur.

Its true as history has proven. Good job.
whiteazaleas Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2004  Hobbyist General Artist
I tend to disagree, yes the ratio of people involved in a situation can affect the increase of how fucked up a situation can get. However one should take into consideration how fucked up just one individual is and then you would have a basis to go off of to compare the rest. All it takes is one individual with the right kind of power and the wrong kind of additude to move and destroy the masses of those who can't or won't think for themselves. Its not just the amount of people but the amount of brainpower involved or lack there of.

Great Deviation, it has done its purpose. :clap:

(i think that) The theory is correct, a lot of people will support a certain statement without knowing the real reason or details...
It's the "being part of a group" feeling...very dangerous.
Before you know it they will create a non existing Hierarchy.
And impose their non existing laws and restrictions.
They might even be looking for traitors and everything goes wrong.

Great work.
Nyctophobia Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2004
i cant believe how much i love all ur artpolitik pieces. they are amazingly true, i think thats why so many people like them. they speak to us in words that have been whispered but never said before. we've realised this.. all of these things u say. but we never had the strength to say them ourselves.
passenger-nq Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2004
well, i never thought of this, but it's somewhat true, that the more people are in a group, the more a suggestion may statistically encounter opposition. and now that i think of it, it really happens. it's easy to make one, 2 or 3 minds agree, but the more they are, the harder it becomes. this could even explain why we all have such problems with our oh so good system of democracy. a very good thought, very good. respect.
and the pic is very nice too, it explains the thought very well

undertherose Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2003
people are inately evil,that's obvious.therefore the more people involved with a project the more likely it will become corrupted,destroyed,misled, etc. but this image you made seems a little too closeminded.there isn't any room for grace in this picture,nor is there any hope.without either what is there?but i guess art thrives off of depicting and being carried out by fucked up people.but more than anything i just found your statement with the picture to be [link] seems so pretentious. i mean do you think that because you dislike people,or a certain group, or set number of people, that you are somehow superior to us? i don't know.the image looks great,but that's about it for me.sorry this is so long.i had a lot of my friends help me type it and now look what got fucked up,oh well.such is life.right?

its a brilliant piece youve got here. i took a look at artpolitic yesterday and they send some good messages. i agree with this one wholeheartedly. +fav ( even tho this is really behind everybody else i felt i shuold tell you i liked it)

I whole-heartedly agree

I can't say enough how much I respect the message in art you and artpolitic produce. I've only now heard of it for the first time, and I'm quite excited.

aemni Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2002
in other words, this is a cry for something that u dont have 2 cry for

u have the right, u have the mind, DO IT
aemni Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2002
i agree, in ways

this seems 2 be a cry for freedom of speech, which we are claimed 2 have, but in fact do not

ethics, morals, everything gets in the way

as an extropian i try 2 see things with an "optimists eye" so to speak

i say, if u wanna say, if u wanna do it, do it, nothing can stop you

not government acts, not religious facts, only u can stop u

if u were truly determined 2 work with an idea ur given, then u will

potential is limitless, and we have the choice of utilizing it 2 our advantage

What do I think?

I don't think adding another person to a situation would necessarily make the outcome more fucked up....

Adding chainsaws, hydrochloric acid, and strippers would though.
princessleia Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2002
this is fantastic, and unfortunately the concept is very true - want a clearer example than devART itself? LOL this goes to my favs for such a defined message, which is somewhat rare in most art submitted here

Hahah. I can't believe I missed this. I love it!
nenemosha Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2002
wow, another great strong piece to add to the collection.

I'm real proud of you and your group. Art has always been a way for the mind to express what the mouth is afraid to say, and not saying that you wouldn't have the balls to say what's on your mind but you're doing a good job of forcing the people in this community to look at the world outside of our own safe little protective boxes.

;) (Wink) I admire your work.

Keep it up

The more people you add, the bigger the chance is for someone to misunderstand and destroy what the others have built up. Just look at the anti-economicglobalization demonstrations wich have gathered thousands of peaceful activists, then you have the blackbloc/anarchists who have to screw it all with their violence, i mean, look in the newspapers, none chose to focus on the colorful demonstration, they only focus on the small episodes of violence in between.

i dont know why you have put up democracy, socialism, communism and so on. feel free to expand your explaination.

personally i think we have woven ourselves into such a large system, there is such a long road to those who got the power, that we let others rule our lives. the best thing would be to live in small societys with a strong local democracy, i find anarchy too naive.

i like pictures of rioters, got a collection of cutouts from newspapers:) (Smile)
fae13 Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2002

powerful and sharp.
i appreciate the freedom that you allow yourself to have through your art. what takes you above so many other artists is the fact that you educate yourself. :) (Smile) you bring forth pieces that evoke discussion. you make the masses think. for that reason alone, i am always utterly thrilled to see a new submission from you.

hundreds of social earthquakes rock our world. i would love to believe in a simpler, more homogeneous way for people to create/build rather than destroy even elementary ideas through selfishness and ignorance.. hmm.. but this is where my utopian views begin to fumble and gather dust.
what keeps my hopes alive are people like yourself who promote awareness. I believe that more people are listening than we think. :) (Smile)

Fantastic Work.
