Description This originally began as a watch face design, and became a print. In the future we are floating in mobile cities, building communities underwater, and soaring into deepest depths of space. We can tame hurriances, feed millions with super-concentrates, and power the world from the oceans. You can wear the power of a supercomputer inside your wristwatch, and everyone is trained from childhood to be telepathic and communicate across any distance. The future is a place where anyones true identity can exist, a place where individuals can contemplate a future shaped by their own dreams and talents. Or this is a dystopian future with an all seeing multimedia eye shapes our dreams and desires, cascades of pharmaceuticals modify our freewill and happiness, and governments create perpetual war to maintain a fear culture and dependence on a bloated government. Either path our past in no longer our future.
Bill O'Neil, Milwaukee Member Since October 2006 Artist Statement My artwork inspirations include a few odd conspirators like the chaotic influences of cryptography, prime numbers, and decay. I'm also influenced by Eames-era artifacts, retro-modern abstract art, architecture, and advertising. And all these inspirations manifest themselves in the different pieces I produce.
I really never approach my art very logically. It’s all fairly impulsive and obsessive. I just try to understand what it means when it’s complete. I like to think of my style as a super-nautural fusion of urban graffiti, mid-century modern abstracts, advertising design, and some kind of otherworldly information maps.
