“Listen to a sound until you no longer recognize it.”
Artist Chris Ware observed: “We don’t really ‘see’ anymore after a certain age, we spend our time naming and categorizing and identifying.”
If we can let this habit lapse, we can appreciate the pure visual composition of objects. How the light plays on them, the rhythm of their repeating shapes. Stripped of scale and context, everyday things we don’t really “see” can be be tiny mysteries to unravel, or pure meditations on form.
