Chase Alias' Show :)(: Conceptual Art Photography and Ideas

A Flickr user has darkened this photo for up to 24 hours as a symbolic gesture to raise awareness about the potential impact of two pieces of pending U.S. anti-piracy legislation - SOPA (The Stop Online Piracy Act) and PIPA (The Protect IP Act).
While the inclusion of this blackout screen is merely a symbolic gesture -- not an actual allegation that this photo violates any copyright -- a user wanted you to take note of the harmful impact these bills could have on innovation online. For more information see http://blog.flickr.net/.

Chase Alias' Feelings of Unfamiliarity
...No matter whether or not we are convinced of the information that is present to us, every bit is useless in allying our doubts about the likelihood of the photograph. Analyzing light, density and amounts causes logic and emotion to become dissociated amid a dependance on facts and feelings of unfamiliarity. -Ai WeiWei
