Re: Uniform Aesthetics
Ugh, I HATE it when people ask, "why don't you speak...?" I'm like, because I'm not that smart, okay!!@# Thanks for going through my archives, but beware of going through them too carefully; there's a danger of wasting one's whole life. That said, I do love those two pictures. The first one, I carry around in my phone for people who ask to see my cats. The second is Seven-of-Nine!
A quick series of mouse clicks tells me this creature Seven-of-Nine is a former Borg drone (whatever that is!), who explores the positive and negative sides of human individuality. She occasionally creates conflict by her comments on humanity and all its follies. Before her arrival the crew members were just one big happy family. There’s more. Seven-of-Nine is “a logical, matter-of-fact, extremely blunt young woman who has difficulties expressing human emotion. Sometimes she behaves condescendingly towards human weaknesses and inefficiency, but slowly grows loyal to the crew she comes to call her collective.”
Well, it seems to me that Seven-of-Nine says one thing, and your photos say another!
