hi Lotus

Of course, the screen medium detracts from the object, flattens, and lessens a more tactile interaction. I do have a sense of the sea with the watery colours and wavy framing. The circular centre could be one of those creatures that cling to rock. The title references sidewalks so directs me to view a more concrete, urban setting. Perhaps there is an illusion of a washed up seascape in human debris and I'm viewing not an alluring image, but waste.

Let's see, Lotus.

Sidewalks are inanimate and enclosing—they define where you can be. The ashtray (I'm calling it) is these things. Mermaids are alive, sensual, enticing, and the ripe tomato is these things. Yet their textures and colors and surfaces and shapes show even the inanimate and the alive affect or succumb to each other.

ripe tomato
:idea: Hadn't seen that specific fruit originally. Yes, there is a possibility of renewal, invite, in that perspective.
