Inside, we are just the same thing.
You could probably introduce a 'WTFriday Special' series, with each week presenting another of Kago's works.I like his stuff very much, altough I still couldn't figure out if he draws them in some kind of asylum...
Isto parece mais uma idéia sobre o Brasil, um pouco distorcida, mas é uma idéia de Brasil.A mix of many cultures that ends in a thing like sh*t. E que está tentando formar um padrão.é uma imagem bem elaborada.é possivel imaginar um monte de coisa vendo esta imagem... até um moedor de carne gigante moendo pessoas. '-' meuito tenso
wow this seem pretty racist, it look like every people from other race need to be dead and become a japanese?
i dont think its racist it shows peoples individuality being take away as they are turned into indistinguishable office workers
I have to agree with UKyuki. You can see all the different types of people being ground up in the "cooperate" grinder by a (I'm assuming by the periwinkle nail polish) giant tyrannical woman such as an American greaser, a kimono wearing geisha, and for whatever reason the naked black woman in the back. Why she's naked is for only you the viewer to decide.
Interesting piece of art.
Lol I love this guys works so much, you should definately upload more :3lol and how is this racist? somebody tell their 13-year-old to get off the computer XD
is it me or is the cartoon guy from fallout at the front?
Reminds me of a quote from Amélie Nothomb from the book Ni d'Adam ni d'Eve (Tokyo Fiancée)... It explained how people in Japan became working fodder (from the expression cannon fodder).
"wow this seem pretty racist, it look like every people from other race need to be dead and become a japanese?"Am I worried more about how weird Japan is or am I more worried about how idiots like you seem to manage to breathe in this world?
Um, the idea is that everything that makes us original and interesting and individual is killed, resulting in a homogenized whole.it's a criticism of japanese society - or even modern culture overall.if you didn't get that, you're already lost.
Interesting that a Japanese person has actually understood the pressures of Japanese society and what it amounts to. Being one myself, I can understand why some move to America....
pink floyd the wall japanese version
this is like pink floyd's The Wall.
"Anonymous at November 17, 2010 4:25 PM": I completely agree. Wonderful analysis. (:Lili: Really? *Sigh*. The internet needs less people like you.
remould the individual into the ideal corporate sterotype
Ahh, I get it almost completely now... All of the various world cultures are being broken down turned into mush and reformed into the shape set forth by templates of what a person should be. Kind of the end result of urbanization, a uniform force of people. One culture, one thought pattern, mindlessly walking forward.
This could be interpreted in many ways. All I can see is an example of assimilation because of the different cultures that are displayed here going through the building and ending up as business men.
this is irony to japanese society.
Then again, all those nationalities being blended used to be separate tribes and villages. But don't worry, It is only a matter of time when that unification breaks apart.
The true meaning of this picture is very disturbing. This is what we need to fight. The mind control.
is this how japanese people are made?
This is capitalistic Globalisation in a nut shell.
What happens when you try to take over the world*cough**cough**like with just one idea**thinking everyone should be the same*
a criticism to Japanese people, urban lifestyle and the globalizationnot only in Japan, In my city,Jakarta, people are expected to work like in schedule. from birth to death, day to dayschool - college - work - retired - dead
Ooooooh I get it now....Still fuck up though :/
