Watercolor on paper, 12 Feb 2005
There is a tendency in some human beings (including some artists), to shock the public "to wake them up", and thus hopefully instigate the changes they deem necessary.
However, shock alone is not enough to change people’s mind. Expecting changes on people by shocking them with weird or disgusting shows is as naïve as expecting changes on people by shocking them with a live wire. If they don't understand why, and what they are shocked for, don't expect any changes.
When a new truth is understood, a change of mind occurs and then people are shocked by the perception of this change- This is called catharsis: the intelligent shock that precedes a paradigm change.
