Flatland

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on February 6, 2010 by pictureplane

From Wikipedia


The square has a dream about a visit to a one-dimensional world (Lineland) which is inhabited by “lustrous points.” He attempts to convince the realm’s ignorant monarch of a second dimension but finds that it is essentially impossible to make him see outside of his eternally straight line.

After the Square’s mind is opened to new dimensions, he tries to convince the Sphere of the theoretical possibility of the existence of a fourth (and fifth, and sixth …) spatial dimension. Offended by this presumption and incapable of comprehending other dimensions, the Sphere returns his student to Flatland in disgrace.

I found these after reading Kottkes entry about this article. Both are well worth the read.

R.Sikoryak fuses classic cartoons with literary classics.Want

“Blondie and Dagwood act out Genesis in Blonde Eve; Garfield tempts Jon into a deal with the devil in Mephistofield; and Batman turns into Raskol for a reworking of Crime and Punishment…These retellings linger on the philosophical underpinnings of such tales; coupled with the allusions and baggage of these familiar cartoon characters, the crossovers take on a life of their own to become legitimate adaptations.”amazon review
