I spent so long staring at this blog, believing it was nothing but idiocy, but then I understood it's a metaphor for modern culture. The bullet point represents us, humanity, but instead of remaining a lone, pure shape we are plagued by this large string of language next to us. The string of characters is  obviously something man-made and is specifically descriptive of the bullet point, this represents our propensity as a society to analyse ourselves and that the analysis has clouded us to the reality of our world. We don't look and see a simple square, we feel the need to label it, to make it as if it exists to have purpose specifically for our gain, and so we declare it "bullet point".

The bullet point points past the words, stretching to the right on its path to infinity, unrelentless and unavoidable and completely predictable, just the archetypal male is always on a path to conquer the world around him, surmounting the unsurmountable until he encounters oblivion.

But that's just it, the bullet point/male is faced with the insurmountable, the size of the words "Bullet Point" show that this label is much more powerful than him and the length of that string of characters in comparison to him show that long after he is dead the label will linger on. No matter how much power he amasses within society he can never really overcome this label.

Unloved by his father and chastised by his wife, he holds no quarter for society as a whole, and as he struggles to find his motivations to pull himself through day after day in the never-ending cycle of a living, breathing metropolis, he discovers that happiness can hide in the most unexpected places.

I'm very proud of the discussion that's been brought about by this painstakingly crafted blog.

But are these things we know are happening or is this speculation without any evidence being provided by artist to support what you're saying? I have begun to believe there could be an optimistic message behind this work but not in the way you are describing. You see the thing we have ignored all this time is that this world of the bullet point and society's label exists entirely under the banner of "blog". What is a blog? It is but words, often simple opinions. Perhaps what this piece is trying to tell us is that we are only held back in life by these labels if we believe what others say, only if we truly pay attention to society's blog shall we be labelled. The simplicity of the work reflects this, it shows that society is empty and devoid of depth, and that the answers we seek must be found by looking at the world as a whole (i.e. Including the title in our analysis) instead of focusing on the labels we are given.
