An i For An i

Actually it was posted by Karen, a guestblogger at bagnewsnotes. She also offers these as possible artistic interpretations:
What's it trying to say? Well, let's try some spin. How about: the iPod as an avatar for our materialistic culture, one of the things that fundamentalist Muslims hate and fear about us in the first place? Or: abused Iraqi prisoners became just another object to soldiers from an object-obsessed country? Or: the cord that links listener to music becomes the cord that will forever link Lynndie England to these men in her photos? Or even: this image is fast becoming an iCon of this war, as can be seen here at Proud Liberals?She found the pic at Turbanhead.
Try some of your own. Whatever you decide -- ha, ha! Madja think!
One picture, so many links. As a Mac geek, I find the linking of violence and torture to Mac (iPod) to be almost sacrilegious, at the very least un-iMacian. On the other hand, Karen makes some valid observations.
