Art Reflections
    What do we see in this era of images? How do we see? The television screen presents another dimension ¨C look at the faces in the television screen. Those faces are either firm or proud or contemptuous. Glories, memories, the discourse of power presented in subtitles seem to all drown in the din of daily life or the aromas of the kitchen. Yet we cannot just acknowledge the dissolving power of daily life. These public TV portraits, while constituting heterogeneous matter, are also accentuated and reinforced by reality. The intersection of time and space makes it possible for things to appear and reappear in places where they don¡¯t belong. Those familiar scenes have become strange and full of conflicts. As we re-examine the world around us, can we reawaken warmth and sympathies?
