    Default analyze these pictures

    it happens a lot where pictures really strike me and i don't know why and i get really curious to ask other people what they get out of the picture in terms of symbolism or vibe or whatever so i'm going to put some pictures here and maybe you guys might enjoy analyzing them. if people actually participate i'll probably do this again. and i will be very pleased.

    just do whatever ones you want.

    I said essay, but now it's going to be an unorganised dot point thing, sorry... we used to overanalyse photos in English class in high school, it was super lame but this is kind of nostalgic Also, it means that 90% of this is just projection and wankery

    Picture 1.

    - no full faces, hidden eyes, mouths - mystique, ambiguity of emotion
    - exposure of vulnerable parts - neck, inside of wrist, vulnerability emphasised by wispiness of hair
    - lots of dark negative space in background, hair and clothing - emphasis on mystery, paired with light, high contrast, largely monochromatic - dramatism
    - piercings are cool


    Picture 2.

    - indistinct lines - figure not fully formed, gives impression that the figure is not of the physical realm
    - eyes appear to be fully open and semi-closed at the same time
    - third eye
    - elfin ear
    - roses and thorns - symbol of justaposed beauty and pain
    - are those nipples?
    - overall, another mysterious figure that's more symbolic than descriptive
    - oh wow, did not see the baby face.

    Picture 3.

    - to me it looks like some squalid sexual act, with gags and fetish hoods and poop.
    - figure on left has innards exposed, looks like it's kind of presenting them to the figure on the right - symbolic emotional vulnerability? Downturned head may symbolise defeat, resignation to one's fate, surrender
    - figure on right is taking the other dude's heart - again, emphasises idea of emotional vulnerability, but since her boobs are out, maybe she's vulnerable too? Double vulnerable if they turn out to be moobs
    - I have no idea what's going on in the background, but the bit in the top left hand corner looks like it's depicting the inside of the dude on the left's head, which is black rain - symbolic of depression, doubt, sadness? Top right looks like a hippo vomiting on her head...
    - What is going on at the bottom? Is she emerging from a sleeping bag made of a hollowed out seal, lined with brown shag pile carpet? Is it just a massive unshaved 80s porn full bush?
    - yeah, this one has me stumped.

    Basically lungs, I think you like depictions of mystery and vulnerability in your art

    Can I analyze you first?

    Picture one: Close your eyes and speak no more, for you are known to me.

    Picture two: Through the windows of my soul you see fragility. My thorns are hidden to you.

    Picture three: bdsm cannibals reenacting 2 girls 1 cup.

    I am not really good at these symbolism things, but here are my vibes

    1) The woman is exerting some dominance over the woman in the foreground.. The woman in the background is hatching some scheme against the viewer, me. The woman in the background is some kind of secret agent?

    2) Weird vibe... not sure what is it. The woman is evil?

    3) A bunch of stuff mixed in together - two different types of drawing on the same sheet of paper, possibly two different authors or drawn at different time. One of the author could be a child. There is also some coffee stain or burnt mark.

    That's the same person to me, actually.

    You have to focus on details disregarding the whole picture, that is isolate every single piece that is present there, which means nothing is what it seems to be.

    1. The woman in the background is the one in control. Her hand is covering the mouth, she's the one staring at our intrusion into the picture, and she's hiding parts of herself behind the girl in the foreground. The girl in the foreground is entranced, eye's closed, yielding, and possibly submissive. The picture is clearly about her, but this causes the girl in the background to look at us. That contrast makes me think that the girl in the foreground is coveted by the background girl for the fact that she's submissive. That she's entranced by a girl who has ulterior motives, and i feel that is shown by the lack of reciprocity in their body language. The relationship between the two is a bad one, and the girl in the foreground either doesn't know or doesn't care. And that synthesis of "Doesn't Know/Doesn't Care" reminds me love, and relationships. As the most common attribute in failed relationships among the young, is an attitude Where they Dont Care to Know, or possibly Dont Know to Care?

    All in all i feel it's about the pull of being wanted, how entrancing it is to find something that makes you feel valued, and to dwelve into that so whole heartedly you end up hurt because of a lack of restraint or a lack of experience.
    I would say that ethically you are still supposed to act as if you have unilateral responsibility; but simultaneously you have to be able to see the other as a fully autonomous, free, aware person.

    Medicalizing social problems has the additional benefit of rendering society not responsible for those social ills. If it’s a disease, it’s nobody’s fault. Yay empiricism.

    2 reminds me of my girlfriend, in the eyes
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    other than the dark secret/repression theme, i want to say there's also something very delicate and feminine in the first picture, something resembling intimacy and closeness but...also, slightly menacing, with an element of poised danger.

    or something.

    My impressions are that you would like her to come to your house for a quick shtup.

    How I interpret the pictures:
    1. Two people represent one person. The more forward and nice part of her cannot handle looking at and speaking against the bad things. The deeper part (anima?) is looks directly and judges. Something Fi tend to do?

    2. Having insight (third eye) that shows beauty (rose) that has attached painful things (thorns).

    3. Can't distinguish details but the main things is - trying to touch someones heart in carnal, biological, disgusting, disturbed? setting.

    Analyze? I can analyze, but I don't find any of those pictures interesting and im lazy so i'll just post what comes to mind when I look at them.

    1. Black Swan
    2.Third Eye, Foreboding.
    3. Disgusting...

    When I look at all three of them, im reminded of "Silent Hill".

    I feel like we should be analyzing you instead, there's obviously a connection between you and these pictures you find appealing.

    @Agee The Great

    I think that was intended as a passive aggressive dig but I can't tell for sure?

    I like being analyzed but I have other threads floating around that are better suited. the 4w/ anxiety vs 6 thread for example. go forth and make yourself useful.

    No it wasn't, but I was just thinking of how you seem so full of melancholy and dread...how it relates to the pictures that strike out to you and what that might say about you. I'll go check the other thread though.

    I've been in better places emotionally but I'm really not as miserable as everybody seems to think I am lately. just bored and lonely basically, but not despairing.

    1. twinship, competition&lesbianism; I love the contrast between the whiteness of the skin and the clothes. picture can also be interpreted in terms of an alter-ego figure trying to take control of and silence the woman, ofc

    2. the only meaning I can find in this picture is something about a childlike vulnerability and a feeling of watching, but also being watched -- it's like the only sense really active concentrating the vitality of the person (who looks kind of frail and sick)

    3. sp/sx porn. I deeply detest such pictures and cannot comment more.
