This is a social experiment about communication. It is human nature to look at something and try to make meaning out of it. No matter how much meaning you think there is in these pieces, there really isn’t. In fact, I wore one of these images on a t-shirt the other day and could see people look at my shirt and try to figure it out. The joke is on them because…It doesn’t mean anything.
So you see, the great thing about Wake’s art is that it creates such absurd thoughts in your head. I would go as far as saying that this is not only a experiment about communication, but it is also a lesson in art appreciation. Wake teaches us that it is not about how visually appealing something is, but how that something connects with your mind.
