Near Yet So Far from Here! We The People: PODs The Crowd Dynamic #1 — Inclusion/Exclusion/Socialization PODs represent people within the crowd dynamic — that don’t look like people. They are shapes that resemble in the simplest form a person, body, the being not being. They just are. This is an episode in their Journey. Diversity of color and shape bring the PODs to life, they mingle, they overlap, they share their energy and create a community. At this point they are on the same “path” together, be it a staircase or other. The black and white paintings represent an“otherness”, outsiders. People who are not yet within the space the colorful crowd occupies. This group, crowd, have a different set of experiences as with them there is a constant change of perspective, inclusion, exclusion, acceptance in the socialization of crowd.
