Something Awful

Through Boing Boing I found this image, part of the Photoshop Phriday Competition at Something Awful. This week the assignment was to modernize art.

Fascinating: as if the worst fear of humans is no longer to burn in hell, but to lose a game of Halo. How small is the globalized world of the video game player? One image that is missing from the competition I think, was Munch's 'The Scream': The famous guy adorned with the white earbuds that are the signature of the iPod. But that is probably because that image is hard to create. The face would have to be altered from expressing primal fear to glowing with the bliss of ignorance
