I've thought a lot about art as discovery lately, and the start of a new week seemed like a good time to start more research on that idea.
"All walking is discovery. On foot we take the time to see things whole." - Hal Borland
"To produce is to draw forth, to invent is to find, to shape is to discover..." Martin Buber
"The greatest obstacle to discovery is not ignorance - it is the illusion of knowledge."- Daniel J. Boorstin
"When you realize that the contours of objects are not always visible to the human eye and therefore don't have to be recorded, you enter into a period of visual discovery like no other." -Jack Clifton
"Gender as it functions today is a grave injustice. I am angry. We should all be angry. Anger has a long history of bringing about positive change. But I am also hopeful, because I believe deeply in the ability of human beings to remake themselves for the better." - Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
A little bit of color for your Wednesday - courtesy of Erin O'Keefe and her photo series titled, Things As They Are. Her experience in architecture and photography meet in the middle to inform these stunning abstract pieces. In her own words (from her website bio): "My background in architecture is the underpinning for my art practice, providing my first sustained exposure to the issues and questions that I contend with in my photographs."
Unrelated / Related Note: You can submit your favorite color to this project using their interactive color choosing tool. The project seeks to find the world's favorite color. It's a really interesting idea that begs the question of, "why do we stop asking each other about our favorite colors once childhood ends?"
