Existential Ambiguity

Standard

 

This post is dedicated to Na Rysunku… an artist I would call “Post Explanationist”. Instead of drawing something, he something draws.

I have done that here. I don’t know what I was trying to draw. As a matter of fact, I really don’t know if I was trying at all. It just happened. I have taken it one step further, however. I have found that a 90% clockwise rotation radically changes the character of the drawing.

I have named each iteration according to my own personal interpretation. Please scroll no further until you come up with your own one-word impression for each drawing.

After you have done that, see how you match up to my one-word impressions. To do this, scroll down now.

Bird Smirk Business Card

Standard

On a daily basis, my CafePress shop, “Bird Smirk Creations”, is about one in a million things available on the internet. And that might be a very generous assessment. What are the odds that somebody is going to come across my site? That’s right…about one in a million. Therefore, I have designed a physical counterpart to the digital Bird Smirk. The Bird Smirk business card.

I am thinking about purchasing 500 business card magnets and plastering them all over town. I hope it is not illegal. My theory is that people will take them and stick them on their refrigerator. On the other hand, if they don’t take them, they will serve as advertising… like a tiny, tiny billboard! Let’s see what happens, shall we?

Perceptual Precept

What is this? What do you see? What is your first impression? What, exactly, is going on here? What do you say about playing a little game? Just describe what you see or feel. It can be an entire paragraph, or one single word. Just respond with something, please.

There is no “right” or “wrong” answer. There is only an answer. One answer.  Yours.
