Spirit Catcher 3000
Thou religious fervor is all the rage these days, that will not always be the case. Religious extremism will take its toll and the pendulum will swing back. This painting represents a time when people are searching for their own path to a unique spirituality. It's also an attempt by people via technology to have their soul live on once their mortal tissue has failed.
Imagine, at the precise moment of death, being able to capture the escaping spirit. Is it possible? Many cultures have thought it so. Assuming it is possible, it's extremely interesting to think of the ramifications... Grandma's soul sucked up into a party balloon suspended over the dinner table during the holidays??
Spirit Catcher 3000 poses a simplistic method to capture the spirit. I have immediately taken this solution and cheapened it via inevitable mass-commercialization.
Grieving and then Renewal
Grief must be respected and this may seem a bit unsettling at first, but ... what if?
A celebration, a renewal of the spirit! Imagine the celebration. A rebirth of the soul. A new beginning. This detail view is taken from the left side of the painting.
It's Pergatory, Damn You!
