Inflammatory letters, colourful words, fanatical statements

“Inflammatory Letters” by Jenny Holzer

In the Inflammatory Essays, Holzer presents provocative statements which were inspired by the texts of political theorists and religious fanatics. Originally, the Essays were fly-posted across New York City.

Now over to all of you. Do come and join us in our Saturday six-word musings.

I’ll admit that many of us openly break the numeric rule and share far more words (all excellent of course!) so the key rule is to have a title of six words – and then create around that the post that you desire! Perhaps in bunches of 6 words if you’re feeling inspired.

To join the challenge, please put a link in your post to the URL of this post. Then come back here and leave us a comment. If you have any problems with linking, just put your own URL into the comment. And do feel free to socialise digitally – tweet, instagram, flickr, etc. with the hashtagtags #SixWordSaturday and #6WS.

  1. Very colourful and indeed interesting.

    I love this challenge because it works in the opposite direction to other challenges. Normally, I take a prompt and try to find a photo to go with it. Here, I pick a photo and try to find the words. This is partly why I’ve stopped with the literary or movie titles because it took that away. But… I love allusions and so I couldn’t help but think of “fat bottomed girls” and Queen when I saw these bumble bees but that’s the best I could do to get the title in six letter form:

  2. I thought they were plastic blocks st first – and then saw the letters – and ugh – read the pink and started the yellow but no more – so aggressive – and I get that that is the point
