The Montage

The Montage:

The technique of combining in a single composition pictorial elements from various sources, as parts of different photo- graphs or fragments of printing, either to give the illusion that the elements belonged together originally or to allow each element to retain its separate identity as a means of adding interest or meaning to the composition.

We Reflect A…. montage every day that we place ourselves on the throne designed only for the infinite and the grand designer of all things.

Why do I say this? Because, every day of our lives we are reflecting some attribute, some characteristic, some behavior.

Illuminating some light, or maybe a montage that presents as light, but instead, is darkness guised as light.

If the light is not a ray that is reflected from the light of the world, Our Savior, then the reflection is only a montage;

Giving the illusion of one thing, a buttress of facade ... An apparition, a hoax, an imitation, a counterfeit.

Why expend so much energy morphing into the faulty design of another?

Abandoning introspection, and, yet, chasing after and modeling the creation of another; who, when you search for the inception of their ethos—our ethos, your ethos—you find that they, too, are just another semblance of another.

How easy it is for us to get lost in the sea of persona ... The montage.

All the while, abandoning self for approval. Why a montage?
