    Wut?

    Saw this posted elsewhere. Purportedly this is a description of a photography contest. WARNING: If you understand this, seek help immediately.


    “Transitions and displacements are the objects of reflection for our call. The concept of the two terms is a recall to the “liquid” vision of contemporary philosophy. Transitions, displacements, mutations of condition are the prerogatives of a fluid approach to reality, prerogatives of a free change in the state of things that allows full organic adherence to the environment and to the context in which each subject / object is immersed . The works that will take part in the exhibition will represent an excursus on the subject, addressed both from a physical, chemical and biological point of view and from a social, cultural and political one”

    Looks like just another call for entries in an art competition.

    But just reading the text itself, I'd think it's a proposal for federal funding of a dubious project ... or maybe a doctoral dissertation abstract at a spurious online university.

    reading the description, if you took a pic of those thesaurus pages it would be a valid submission and might even win a prize.

    I would call that what it is but this is a family magazine. Just remember, the most powerful words in the English language are all one syllable - war, peace, love, hate, sex,eat, food,yes, no,go, come,live, die, rob, steal, kill, car, bus, train, plane, boat, dog, cat, etc., etc.

    Actually the banana was free, it was the duct tape and wall that brought the money...

    It's talking about the concept of alternate reality, and that's all I can say.
