“Cameron accidentally created a lasting metaphor for the police as just another impassive institution to which society had willingly surrendered too much power, hoping for protection—an institution like SkyNet. “The Terminator films are not really about the human race getting killed off by future machines,” Cameron says on T2’s DVD commentary track. “They’re about us losing touch with our humanity and becoming machines, which allows us to kill and brutalize each other.””

I drew this animation over the weekend on my iPad with a tiny amount of Photoshop touch-up before posting.
I’ve always wanted to do something like this and maybe I’ll clean it up even more to actual final art style!

Steve McQueen - Deadpan (1997)
Turner Prize-winning artist Steve McQueen—now best known for his feature films, Hunger, Shame, and 12 Years a Slave—put himself in the line of fire in Deadpan (1997), a restaging of Buster Keaton’s falling house gag from Steamboat Bill Jr. McQueen does more than remake the stunt; his presence as a black man transforms the work into a commentary on race relations and the precariousness of the black experience.

“In reality, Americans are less likely to move upward from their class of origin than are Germans, Canadians, Finns, French people, Swedes, Norwegians, or Danes. But the myth, fortified with bracing doses of positive thinking, persists. As two researchers at the Brookings Institution observed, a little wryly, in 2006:
“[The] strong belief in opportunity and upward mobility is the explanation that is often given for Americans’ high tolerance for inequality. The majority of Americans surveyed believe that they will be above mean income in the future (even though that is a mathematical impossibility).””
