I am not sure if I have ever seen this done before but it does remind me of the world we live in now. It is thought provoking!

Am really impressed with the artists rendition of war news hidden in the maps, and how she has shown how countries change borders etc due to war. Even reminds me of the Rorschach tests. ~Beth

I have a suggestion… If I can humbly submit it to you?… Please?… Try to think about THIUS instead… TRANSFORMING HATE and separation to LOVE and UNITY for ALL! … GLOBL PEACE?… CAN we DO IT finally?

so… in THIS SPIRIT?… I would like to just shed some LIGHT into the situation … if you will all just please indulge me? …

Can we all just try HARDER to concentrate on something MUCH MORE PROACTIVE… USE our Intelligence to promote UNITY instead of hatred for each other?… Its not about who can SEE what… It’s about Brotherhood of MAN! … and loving each other!… regardless of who is right or wrong! … about bringing GLOBAL PEACE … and this is ONLY done through the power of UNCONDITIONAL LOVE!.. So?… Please my “fellow brothers and sisters”?… of the GLOBAL COMMUNITY (whatever nation you are from) .. Can we all just try a little bit harder to USE our TALENTS for GOOD?..
IF we ALL did our own INDIVIDUAL part JUST to DO THIS ONE THING ALONE?… (in the words of a GREAT ONE) …
JUST IMAGINE!!! … What a world we could ALL HAVE!
PEACE!
I love you ALL!

Person in hazmat suit holding what appears to be two turkeys. Is this about avian flu or is it inferred the US would invade Turkey next?

Person held at gunpoint. Happens all over the world – all sides for well over 100 years.

Civil disobedience. Male throwing molotov at male with helmet, club and shield running at him. Happens pretty much everywhere.

Soldier lying on ground firing East. Helmet isn’t American.

These four images are nicely done. Are they meant to be taken together as a message? It’s difficult to make much of it.

Subliminal messages reminding us the harsh reality of war.

Good luck to BBC-World. Hopefully there are still a few people left in the world who will remember that the right to become”global” was BOUGHT and PAID for by some who should be thought of dearly and with great respect!

I’m American and I don’t need anything low-brow.
I think there a great piece of art, and I saw it immediately.

How about a peace sign!

Enough hate, could the map change?

I AM COLOR BLIND AND I COULD SEE THE PICTURES. SOME OF YOU PEOPLE NEED NEW EYES

Aren’t we profound? These images are called human frigging history. Pick a date. Pick a country. They are thought provoking, but for those who feel the need to “rub” Americans and Brits for being warmongers maybe you should look down at the oil stain on the ground next time you are gassing up your SUV or BMW and tell us what f-ing image that one says about you.

very smart. 🙂

Okay, I am both good at this type of thing, and educated; But I cannot see anything. So please, those of you with conceit, do not judge the ones who cannot see it. I am sure there are things you do not know that I know quite well. I am very familiar with maps of the world. From the days of the Precambrian to today…….. so email me already and tell me what it is I am looking for in the images……. I’m lost in a sea of angry sharks here. *email address: brooke_lea_girlie@yahoo.com >>> no personal attacks to this email please, I come in peace.

I ride the Long Island RR everyday and have seen these
posters for a while. At first I was trying to figure out
where these places might be. Then the guy in the bio
suit carrying the two dead birds just jumped off the page!

This morning I noticed the one with the guy holding the
gun pointed at the blindfolded person.

This is VERY clever!

For all people can’t see what is here.
Map 1 : Is a man with a mask in the mouth carrying 2 chickens. (aviar theme)
Map 2 : is a man with a fusile and a surrender.
Map 3 : two protestants with molotovs
Map 4: Is a man shooting his fusil.
You’ re welcome.

The idea its nice and I saw it right a way – but it made me feel like the world map changed to flight.

Subliminal? Subtle? Err… not quite.

If you can’t see it it’s not a bad reflection on you though.

Mostly men are colour blind? Wonder if a woman made that comment??
