Birth, Art Gallery, Death

Birth, Art Gallery, Death is a minimalist triptych in the form of a screensaver package by Elna Frederick, an obscure artist from Computers Club. With white as life and black as death, each screen saver panel marks a stage in the cycle of consciousness. Birth is the genesis of consciousness through a birth canal of white arriving out of darkness. Art Gallery, where black is conspicuously absent, is the finite enclosure of a lifetime. Its contents are the thoughts and creations arising in consciousness; representations of life. Death, represented by black slowly descending upon a white screen, is ultimately a representation of life.
