We're Still Waiting by DpressedSoul We're Still Waiting by DpressedSoul
So I wait in line, I'm a modern man
And the people behind me, they can't understand
Makes me feel like
Something don't feel right
In my dream I was almost there
Then you pulled me aside and said you're going nowhere
They say we are the chosen few
But we're wasted
And that's why we're still waiting

(Arcade Fire, Modern Man)

Detail of a sculpture by Bruno Gironcoli, Donau-City, 22nd district, Vienna (Austria).

You're right, it could be a scene out of some dystopian fiction. I have to admit though that this photo has not been taken at the Central London Hatchery and Conditioning Centre. ;)

Something about silence and/or waiting came to my mind immediately, even before reading the words, a wonderful ambiguous view, fascinating, I could gaze at those figures for hours, they are beautifully crafted :)

I'm not a huge fan of photographing other people's art but here you have succeeded in bringing something more to the artist's piece. Nice interpretation Florian :clap:

It's indeed necessary to make a "new" work out of it by interpreting it in my very own way. Otherwise it would be just documentary, and referring to the German law, I wouldn't even be allowed to post a photo of it. ;)

Thanks a lot, Richard. I'm glad that you like it! :bow:

I understand the desire of people to "re-invent the mousetrap" :lol:
But for me I stay away from such attempts because in my head I know its not mine in the sense that any "vision" I may use doesn't assure me that the original artist didn't intend for me to see it that way. But I understand that others are compelled to "collaborate" unsolicitedly and my hat is off to them for trying.
