Body painting theme suggestions?!?
1 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: mk.jpg]
I am body painting a model head-to-toe for a competition in October. The model also has to do a short performance of some sort (eg dance, scene act, yoga, spin poi, etc). I am looking for theme suggestions...I have a backup plan, but I would rather do something nerdy again.
Previously I have done
Tetris theme - the model did yoga to bend herself into the different shapes
Mortal Kombat theme - 2 yoga girls painted as Katana and Mileena battled, Mileena won and ripped out Katana's heart then ripped off her mask showing her monster teeth painted across her face
I am looking for NERDY / CULT THEME SUGGESTIONS for this upcoming contest. Not anime.

What is the most emotionally striking work that you have ever seen?

For me it has to be Hitler's The Holocaust (1933-1945) from his Third Reich period. To this day it provokes pure hatred, rage, fear, and sorrow. His name alone is synonymous with evil. Who else accomplishes this? Monet, Picasso, da Vinci, are all parochial compared to this genius. He has inspired artists, writers, film directors, politicians, religious leaders, and everyone else in the Western World. Such is the degree of influence Hitler was able to achieve. It is unfortunate this has gone unrecognized, but I hope that one day people can transcend such blinding hate of this man and learn to appreciate what he gave the art world. Do you?
Are you a fan of Hitler, yes or no? Has any other work succeeded in affecting an audience emotionally?
