This picture shows a couple at home watching a travel program about some exotic place with a sun rising over some beautiful mountains. But the couple do not seem to realize that the sun rising over the beautiful mountains is the image of their own view from their window. Perhaps we modern people no longer appreciate the real things in life.
In this illustration, a young man and woman are relaxing on a sofa and watching a Planet Earth documentary on TV. The beautiful natural scenery shown on their screen is exactly the same as that which is visible through their living room window. We see a range of mountains and the sun in a cloudless sky. The artist who drew this picture is not trying to show reality. He is reminding us that to be physically and mentally healthy, we need to exercise more often and experience our natural surroundings directly.
The picture illustrates a common phenomenon. A couple are watching a DVD about the wonders of the natural world, while the same view can be seen through their window. Too many people nowadays are happy to experience the beauty of nature second-hand, instead of discovering it for themselves. Nature documentaries are useful when they show something that is inaccessible to ordinary people, but those who love nature should get off the couch and make their own discoveries whenever they can.
The way I look at it, this picture shows the absurdity of one aspect of modern life: the pursuit of comfort in everything we do. The couple has come to a famous tourist site. However, since they think it is too hot outside and they don’t want to sweat, they have decided to stay in their hotel room and watch a video of the same site! Sometimes, if you want to enjoy real beauty and feel real excitement, you have to forget about comfort, and experience things directly.
A couple is sitting on the sofa. Instead of looking at the landscape out of the window, they are watching TV that reflects the scenery. Beside them there is a book about nature. In this way, modern people tend to see things and think about them through the media such as television and books in order to get as much information as possible. But the media depict only some aspects of the world when they report. The things we see through them can be biased.
In this picture, a couple is looking at a beautiful landscape on the TV though the very same view is laid out just outside the window. In my opinion, this is an irony to today’s world, in which we can see whatever we want with modern technologies. These technologies are useful, but recently, many people are more interested in the Internet and social media than in looking at what is happening in front of them. However, reality is sometimes different from what is seen in media, and moreover, we should not forget that it can be more moving and memorable than on screens. This picture tells us that it is important to keep a distance from modern devices from time to time and to gain firsthand experience.
A couple is watching beautiful scenery on TV. However, this scenery is exactly the same as the one outside the window. The couple is enjoying the scenery without going outside. I think this implies that we can enjoy any scenery all over the world thanks to the technology development. Now may be the time we can get anything through the technology such as TV and the Internet.
When a young honeymoon couple were in their hotel, they turned on the TV and were surprised to see what was on the screen. It was the same sunset as they could see from their hotel window. The man in the picture excitedly says "what a coincidence!", while the woman replies "this is just a promotional video, produced by the hotel." Nothing is better than seeing the real view with your own eyes. They both now gaze out the window, keeping their eyes on the beautiful sunset.
The couple in the picture is enjoying the fact that a view that can be seen from their living room is shown on the TV, which means that they have a room from which one can see the scenery shown even on the TV. In other words, they are proud of living in that kind of place, but they are modest enough not to get excited about it, but take it calmly and pleasantly.
The same landscape as seen from the window is shown on TV. Even if one sees the same thing, he or she may have different thoughts or ideas depending on the way they look at the thing. When shown on TV, he or she may feel that the thing is something special, and worth more than it actually is, just because it is framed on the screen. On the other hand, he or she may miss something on the screen unless he or she sees it by naked eyes. Of course, the reverse can be true. Therefore, it is important not to assume that what is presented in front of you, in whatever ways it is shown, is everything. In
other words, it is not easy to see the truth. You have to combine various factors or views from different angles when you think that you are seeing something.
