WHAT did Stanley Kubrick dedicate his life to achieve, and HOW did he go about accomplishing his goal?
Guesses/deductions should be submitted either as a drawing with text (to fill in the last panel of the strip), or as a written piece (somewhere between two hundred and a thousand words, roughly).
Keep in mind that the how is as or more important than the what?
Answers (and any questions you may have) can be posted in the comments section below or emailed to jasun at auticulture dot com.
The deliverer of the closest and/or most creative answer will receive a specially marked copy of Seen & Not Seen; two runners up (if there are that many submissions!) will receive some pieces of original artwork relating to the Kubrickon.
All submissions will remain property of the submitter and not be made public without permission of their author. All names will be withheld from the Kubrick Estate and any other inquiring entities under pain of death.
The Kubrickon Competition will end on the last day of 2014.
Good luck ~ and may the best obsessive win!

PS. There is no need at all for the reader/contestant/brainstormer to agree with the preliminary conclusions which I make above. They are simply the means by which I arrived at my own conclusion as to “what Stanley is up to,” and illustrating (literally) my own thought processes was the best way I knew of to lead others to see what I am seeing.
Some people may be put off the exercise, understandably, if they disagree with my evaluation of Kubrick; to them I’d suggest that they approach this in the spirit of a thought-experiment or a “what if”: what if Kubrick were designing movies scientifically etc, etc, what might his intended goal be? And so on.
