#074 – Finaleppo

Techniques: Processing, Flamepainter

Aleppo has entered what hopefully will be the last days of a battle which has been going on for way too long. A real civilian bloodbath, scientifically orchestrated by the world’s superpowers, on a stage set to check who’s the biggest dog and who will be the next sheriff in town.

What a disgusting and pitiful drama. Such a waste, not only of innocent human lives, but also of silent and helpless attention from the blinded masses of our first world. As it readies itself for a tragic grand finale, Aleppo becomes another symbol of mankind’s hopelessness and self delusion.

Monday 12/12 update: 3 terror strikes around the world today: Istambul in Turkey, Cairo in Egypt and Maiduguri in Nigeria, where 2 young girls aged 7 and 8 detonated themselves, killing at least 17. I could as well have placed a satellite view of the world behind my digital strokes.
