David Dees’ artwork

Posted by alifinmath on April 19, 2008

David Dees’ artwork can be found here. It’s black humor. Nah, scrap that last comment. It’s a bit too frightening and a bit too close to the truth to be called black humor. It’s a view of a bleak present morphing into a dystopian future.

    Morgellons? I’ve read about that and a clearer hoax it is hard to imagine…

    There’s some good photoshopping on his site, but I’d like to reiterate that mixing in such ridiculous conspiracy theories as “chemtrails” discredits one pretty thoroughly. So that when someone of his ilk brings up manufactured credit bubbles, or the toxicity of depleted uranium, they help to discredit those real issues by mere association. Of course, nutty conspiracy theorists could be his market, so he might in reality just be a disingenuous capitalist.

    I think we tend to give artists such as Dees a bit more licence than, say, writers. They’re not pretending to a serious analysis and their artwork can be taken as merely a clever visual metaphor for some of the phenomena we see occurring around us. So if he gets some things wrong, that’s fine by me.
