Wait, you don’t know about the three seashells? It’s a reference to the 1993 film Demolition Man. Observe.

As for the art, it’s by artist Barry Blankenship and is an 11 x 17 inch screenprint in a limited edition of 44. It’s part of a gallery show at Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles inspired by the podcast How Did This Get Made? You can buy it here, see all the other art here and listen to the episode here.

Not trying to stir things up, but what’s so great about Demolition Man? From what I’ve read, the movie is pretty much numerous scripts slapped together and DM is the end product. Apparently, Sandra Bullock’s character was supposed to be Spartan’s daughter and there are some threads indicating that. But there’s also a thread for a resistance fighter to also be Spartan’s daughter. I’d rather watch Virtuosity again instead of Demolition Man. At least that way I’d get to see Russell Crowe chew the scenery with aplomb.
