augmented_humanity_02.jpeg

I woke, cold and alone Adrift in an open sea Caught up in regrets And tangled in nets Instead of your arms wrapped around me And I wept, but my tears are anathema here Just more water to fill my lungs I hear someone scream "God what is it we have done?" I am drowning in a digital sea I am slipping beneath the sound Here my voice goes to ones and zeros I'm slipping beneath the sound A song from somewhere below Deadly and slow begins Both sickly and sweet Now picking up speed Ushering in the world's end And the ghost of Descartes screams again in the dark "Oh how could I have been so wrong?" But above the screams the sirens sing their song I am drowning in a digital sea I am slipping beneath the sound Here my voices goes to ones and zeros I'm slipping beneath the sound Here my voice goes to ones and zeros

The enjoy the palette on this one.
It adds to the sci-fi, cyberpunk vibe.

Thanks Connie!

A beautiful creation but a great pity that the translator does not translate your story to me, I even tried to copy and change the typography but you can't. I just think that history accompanies such a beautiful image since your creativity does not really need words. My admiration.

Thank you so much norma. The description is a song by the band Thrice. Maybe this will work better:

I woke, cold and alone
Adrift in an open sea
Caught up in regrets
And tangled in nets
Instead of your arms wrapped around me
And I wept, but my tears are anathema here
Just more water to fill my lungs
I hear someone scream
"God what is it we have done?"
I am drowning in a digital sea
I am slipping beneath the sound
Here my voice goes to ones and zeros
I'm slipping beneath the sound
A song from somewhere below
Deadly and slow begins
Both sickly and sweet
Now picking up speed
Ushering in the world's end
And the ghost of Descartes screams again in the dark
"Oh how could I have been so wrong?"
But above the screams the sirens sing their song
I am drowning in a digital sea
I am slipping beneath the sound
Here my voices goes to ones and zeros
I'm slipping beneath the sound
Here my voice goes to ones and zeros

What a wonderful letter and build the perfect frame to your creation! Thank you for taking this job to transcribe it so you can translate it. We have become accustomed to bringing together the work of art with history and we find it necessary! Now the whole concept is amazing. My usual admiration.

I love this tunnel vision and repetition in your written expression and your piece. Ones and zeros and on and on. The solitary figure, like the loneliest number in the middle of that tunnel of zeros. Love.

Thank you Ruth! I was hoping that the lyrics would match the imagery and it seems they have!

It's a song by the band Thrice. It's called "Digital Sea". It looks like I forgot to credit them in the description of the piece... oops!

Standing at the entrance or in the middle of a new frontier? With all the tears of the past behind me now, I welcome whatever will come to me in my future.

I may feel that there is little choice in the world I am entering but maybe if I choose to be the best I can be and be present to all the changes ~ My life will be filled with new meaning ~ Although everything about it is still likely to mystify me.

Brilliant piece Jarid. Love the colour and how it draws me into a world of new light. ♥︎♥︎⚖️♥︎♥︎
