A Way To See
This is what I would like to do: make people aware of their surroundings. What is the percentage of people who actually understand and appreciate the areas around them? Interiors and or exteriors? Architecture? Outdoor spaces? Streetscapes? The correlation of the elements within interior spaces they visit; from the interior of a closet to the interior of their workout space? Have them actually see what is around them. Not just the objects themselves, as objects, but their relationship to each other and the elements that they are in. It would be wonderful for people to see that their surroundings are far more than they assume. What a discovery it could be! To understand and see the negative to the positive, the curvilinear to the straightedge and back again to the hue and tone. Light to dark, sharp to soft, the various degrees of color saturation. How and why the placement of an object as simple as a vase filled with flowers changes the room. Why the addition of a shape and the value it possesses alters the dialogue of a painting. How color and line contain mass. Ahhhh, it would be exciting if they wanted to learn and understand how the crack in the sidewalk is more than just a crack.
