This is really an awesome piece of art!!! Well done, Andre Kutscherauer. The German computer graphic artist has won many awards in his field and I am really looking forward to more of his work. Not only is the image very well rendered, it also carries a little sense of humour and kind of philosophical.
A light bulb trying to illuminate itself? Technically, it may not even make sense, where is the energy coming from? (He is only probably going to self-destruct once the power is on!)
However, in the human context, one does sometimes require some external help to bring out the shine that’s hidden within, like a diamond awaiting to be polished. Or perhaps, if you were to look at it from the other extreme, is this an illustration of one’s ego and desire for self-fulfilment?
Whatever it is, I love it, a brilliant piece of work. Here are some sites for more of Andre Kutscherauer’s work – Kutsche Deviantart and ak3d
