Six Degrees Of Separation?

Six degrees of separation is the theory that everyone and everything is six or fewer steps away, by way of introduction, from any other person in the world, so that a chain of "a friend of a friend" statements can be made to connect any two people in a maximum of six steps. It was originally set out by Frigyes Karinthy and popularized by a play written by John Guare.

In today's world it may be more true than ever before. With things like Facebook and Blipfoto, the continental boundaries seem to have disappeared. This set of art, I've been working on for a while...it began as a study into Notan, the Japanese art of positive and negative spaces, and then I decided "Six Degrees Of Separation" might be a good theme. But as I progressed along, I decided the silhouettes and the numbers made perfect children's art. It's funny how the intended use changed as the art came together.

So now I need a new name for the series...Six Degrees Of Separation just seems a bit too grown up for children's art.
