This is my entry for The Three Muses challenge this week - the theme being Charlie Chaplin. About 35 years ago - just after college my husband and I went to a Chaplin film festival at UC Berkeley ( a tye-dyed and long haired pair!) , and one of the films that really hit me was "Modern Times " made in 1936. It was Chaplin's last "silent" film - despite (talkies) already in full force and it became his social commentary on the ill effects of machination in modern society- (the silent film being a bit of a hold-back to the more modern films with sound). Giant cogwheels and a tiny Charlie represented what he believed to be a scarry -yet funny prospective future! This is a digital collage I made that sort of represents the old and the new in respect to the sentiments the film left me with. An ominous machine in the foreground and a smaller/shadow of Charlie behind. I added a fibre/coffee-stained look to this piece for a bit of ageing.
