Maintaining Normality
About this creation
Maintaining Normality: Created with with LEGO bricks by artist Sean Kenney


Everything familliar is normal to us. Our bodies, our demeanor, social structures, and the things we've inserted into our environs all affect the surroundings with which we coexist on both a physical and spiritual level. And unless done so with great care, we may be surprised to find we've created what we've created.


Maintaining Normality: Created with with LEGO bricks by artist Sean Kenney

We get so accustomed to the things in our life -- whether they're good or not -- that we don't see them for what they are. It's why people behave terribly or not, why cars run on gas or not, why we get fat or not, etc. Sooner or later, if we don't take a fresh, "lets-pretend-its-not-normal" look at things, we may be surprised that our entire world -- physically, socially, and spiritually -- has become a terrible mess.

It's amazing to me how so much can be accomplished with something that may seem to some as a simple creation. I love this

David: It makes complete sense. I perfectly understand what he's saying. He didn't use any real big words. His sentences were just well structured in a way that you aren't used to. Huh, funny, that's what the MOC is about too. Maybe you should try thinking in a more educated manner like Sean.

Yeah, great for you making legos for a living and all... just because everyone else doesnt do it doesn't mean you should rub it in.

The build is so simple yet so thought provoking. This is the kind of thing I love! (Mainly 'cause I fake it on most of my builds and this is something I could aspire to) Really nice job all round! Later ~ Chris.

Wow! I thought it was a picture and then you were going to post the set after it. I can't believe that is a picture with a figure. Lego beauty at its best.

Ever read "Ishmael," Sean? Speaks of the very things you bring up on this page. And I think you're absolutely right. As far as the MOC is concerned, I like the starkness of it, and the assymetrical visual conversation that's going on between the figure and the vertical line. Like Shannon, I'd love to see more of this artistic approach from many of us. Very cool.

Shannon Ocean be right. Our Civilization is like a train coming to a fork in the tracks, and there isn't anyone to turn the lever to keep the train going the right way. Good creation, although a bit bright for my 'Vampiric', as people say, eyes.

I couldn't agree more mate. We're all riding this gigantic train called "civilisation" on it's rlentless course but where is the driver? I'd love to see more work like this from you and others Sean.

As a sculpturer, you make lego art differently. I enjoyed the presentation, but the meaning of that pole is troubling me.
