They were working at different times, in different countries, and had different sensibilities and talents. But both had an active relationship with the media. They didn't just passively consume information, news and entertainment. Both were engaged with all mediums around them. I got the sense that the media -- even something as mundane as mass-produced wallpaper -- became bearable only when they could cut and re-arrange it to show how they saw society, life and the world -- not how the powers-that-be wanted them to see things.
Heart poses, like tree (above), help develop our individual capacity to discern what's of value and what isn't. Instead of wandering through the media matrix without filters, without aim, we build habits of discernment as well as a discriminating 'I' (eye) -- to consciously choose what we take within us, whether it be news stories, ads, symbols, movies, or people.
