Comment the commentaries:
I find it quite interesting how fast the sharks in the cosmic social media aquarium react: Spam mail without end, way too often people who want sell something especially sex (- phantasies) with nude little innocent lolitas… reason enough for me to start the “let’s talk about spam” blog. As long as the springhill-artbeat.com site displayed the photograph of a beautiful landscape there were hardly any comments.
After I changed the cover image to “La Petite Ballerina “ within days I got over one-thousand. I begin to wonder if some google or other algorythms interprete photographs of underage girls as promising prey for Viagra-freaks and pedophiles of all sorts.
Raybuko, my great poet-friend warned me, not to use the photo of “La petite Ballerina” in her sweet pink Tutu as an eye-catcher for the springhillArtbeat Homepage: Anselm, don’t use this image, you’ll fuckion’ get flak for this sooner or later .. people will think this is the “Ol’ Man’s “ – website for pedophiles and young bucks who want to jerk of….
Maybe I was a little naïve , because what I see in this photograph is something else:
For Mary Magdalene’s sake, this little girl ’s dreamin’ about being a great ballerina, a star …. she sees her name written in the yet unnamed star on Hollywood Boulevard. She wants to be somebody famous, with a name, an identity and fortune in a weirdly wired materialistic world.
The irony of all this is: Some time ago I have been asked by a German publishing house affiliated with the Catholic Chruch to illustrate the standard bible with images of my liking. No censorship, complete artistic freedom ( God bless the Roman Catholic Church and may its priesthood find strength to live up to its standards ). One of the photographs I have used was “La Petite Ballerina” in context with a quote from the sermon on ther mount: ‘Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.”
Well this girl, still pure in heart saw (her) God(dess) : Nobodyelse, but herself, maybe her true Self, her soul wanting to manifest its self-perfected state. She’s an innocent dreamer, she uses her imagination and she certainly doesn’t deserve to be, as some mad ass crazyivan posted, his preteenassprincessoilingupheramazingtittieslookfuckinghotvideomademesowetsheisachildfuckinilikeapro.
No doubt: There are predators in the corporate-religious- political-entertainment-military complex, who will abuse and exploit (our) dreams and ideals between the wet and filthy bed-sheets of their fucked-up macho worlds.
As an artist, who tries to look beyond, under and above human moral judgement, I am inspired by this spam-scam-cum-dot-com: Now I am working on a new song , titled “Lil’ Tit” . Once it’s finished I’ll post it on springhill-artbeat.com
