Is it art?

24 second read


Can you see it? In the image above someone has used Forge in Halo 3 to create a self portrait…

To be honest I couldn’t see it at first and needed the larger image (click image) to find it. 

I wish I had the ability to do things like this as it really is quite cool…

You can read the artists reasons and explanations through the link

    Okay the mongoose is the right eye

    The object closest to the bottom is his chin, then the two objects just above are the lips…. see it yet?

    Its a face in 3/4 view. The tower is his right jawline. To the lower left is a horizontal something which is his chin. The two pieces directly above that are his lips. The piece above that is his nose.

    Sorry – the tower is his left jawline – looking at it its on the right.

    well… I must be a retard in every meaning coz for the life of me, i don’t see jack sh*t… no this is going to annoy the crap out me now (thanks lazt πŸ™ ) and i can’t see it…

    Is it because i can’t see the big picture in things or is it that my IQ points are a little bit to low to understand the concept???

    It’s those PS3 red/rose coloured glasses that are obscuring the picture πŸ˜‰

    I blame communism, Lustra, and the fact that at the time of posting I’d not had coffee yet. Had I had my daily caffeine quota, I’m almost certain my post would have been much more poignant and witty.

    Look, I’m sorry I’ve upset you, really.

    If I knew you were sensitive to it, I’d have done it more frequently, and quite possibly in caps, followed by a slew of exclamation marks.

    Anyway, to the actual topic at hand – Who on earth has time to do that sort of thing? It’s certainly interesting, but it’s fairly pointless, and I’m not convinced it’s art. I like the initiative taken to express oneself in a different manner, but I don’t think Halo’s Forge is quite the right canvas.

    I for one wish I had the time to do it…
