Teenagers... 🤷🏼♂️ Interesting, amusing, yet a bit odd 🤣 Came down to the kitchen this morning to discover this bold statement of modern art. What does it mean? The juxtaposition of solid yet transparent glassware and its crystalline structure with the pliable but opaque white-tack; the fingerprints of the sculptor still visible and hinting at its organic nature, able to be reformed into new shapes and configurations. Bridging a gap between solid, brittle realities with infinite possibilities and ways of connecting. Hands reaching out across a man-made void but not quite touching. Or perhaps they have touched, and are now relinquishing their hold. Shaking hands? A high five? A reluctant goodbye? The empty identical vessels represent potential - what will they be filled with in future? Will both contain the same or will different influences dictate the end contents? The viewer is invited to imagine multiple possibilities and outcomes - will it be Diet Coke, or perhaps rum and coke? Time will tell.
Something different i thought i would share; the sunset being one of my favourite sights so far in my life. To me, the first picture fiery and intense juxtaposed with the second image of serenity and light pastel tones, is indicative of my own two sides as with yourself and everyone. My photographs reflect that inward and outward duplicity of our own human emotions, which is okay to have and means something unique to us. These feelings transcends into my art work, making it something intimate and beautful to me. Always.♾
Ralph Waldo Emerson was an American Philosopher and one of the leading figures of transcendentalism. His work espoused individualism, a perspective that sees every individual as unique and the goodness of that individual in the expression of that uniqueness. #opentointerpretation#uofuphilosophy#philosphy # RalphWaldoEmerson #transcendentalism
I was very honored when this photo won 2nd place in the emotional impact category at #ispwp earlier this year. But it's such an interesting photo to me. It shows how a photograph can capture just a split second in time and can be taken in so many different ways. Some people go immediately to emotions like sad, contemplative, or alone. The photo can appear that way and I'd understand taking the photo that way, but I think it was the opposite emotions. This was the grandfather of the groom who couldn't walk all that well. So he was waiting for the family to come back from the receiving line. I felt a happiness and contentment from him when I took this photo. He had just witnessed his grandson get married and was about to see them again for the first time as husband and wife. It's a moment I'm sure he was grateful for and I believe he was contemplative, but in a very happy way. #opentointerpretation#realmoments#phillywedding#dvlop#dvlopmoments#grandparents#realweddingmoments
#repost @fishermanslifemuseum with @get_repost ・・・ Photos can teach us much about ourselves and help us better understand the people around us. This 1979 Nova Scotia Museum photo captures the interpretive theming at Fisherman’s Life Museum in a not so distant past. 🐟 . Today, @fishermanslifemuseum we look to connect, preserve and most importantly learn from all members of our Nova Scotian community including visitors from afar. By opening our museum site story we are getting closer to true authenticity and ultimately delving further into our collective rich past. 🗝 . . @novascotiamuseum #opentointerpretation#partofyourcommunity#yournovascotiamuseum#nsm150#letschat

@iammireilleenos and @joelkinnaman knock it out of the park with #thekilling @amc_tv gave them 3 good seasons, then shorted them on 4 and CXL. But hey - when do #tvnetworks#listentotheiraudience ? #detectivelinden has a great gravatas and feels the crimes crushing her like they were perpetrated on her #detectiveholder is the only one who can make #linden slow down and listen and she makes #holder feel like he is needed; someone depends on him. They are both great counterbalance to the other actor’s character. It deserved more airtime than it got. Did #linden and #holder end up together all those years later? The ending is so... #enigmatic and #opentointerpretation I’d like to think these two characters could finally find some measure of peace.
The Land Between: When life and art sync up in unexpected ways. . 🔎Lately in studio, I've been investigating the concept of No Man's Land and their implications through the lens of more obvious politics but also as a less obvious path to freedom of thinking/action when you don't have to choose between binary opposites but to leave things simply . . . OPEN, so that ideas and thoughts can move consciously unhindered. . 📚Funny that the topic would arise in a children's ex library book published in 1980. I bought it for the kid a few years back but randomly decided to grab it from the shelf for the first time the other day. . ❔Quality contemporary chapter books for early readers are really an untapped niche in the market (any writers out there??) They are mostly limited to overly childish cartoony graphic comics, sci-fi medieval space, syrupy moralistic themes. Ugh . So, I find myself gravitating to garage sale and thrift store finds for things to augment supply for my voracious reader. I generally divine potential interest and quality by reading a few random lines and also by the nature of the book from the inside cover. . This is the story of a lonely prince that forms an unlikely and dangerous bond with a monster in a land between both of their warring (out of fear of other) worlds. . 🌿Refreshing to find something in a time before (underwhelming) P.C. labeling from both conservative and liberal factions, snarky badly written dialogue (that IMHO is inappropriate for the 5-8yo set), longer attention spans, before cell phones and the internet, and when nature was readily incorporated into and was an integral part of a story and slower living was the norm. . 💌 In that light, this was a sweet story about stumbling across people places and things unknown, slowly easing into learning and understanding, and growing relationships in and over time. . #humancondition#compassion#empathy#childrensbooks#childhood#motherhood#montessori#nomansland
