We’re wired to notice the sensational — words and images that shout. It’s difficult to say if these "hits” make us feel uncomfortable or turned on, but we're strangely addicted regardless.
Here the background squares symbolize the “snapshots” we encounter daily -- like the little squares on our Instagram feed, or the words that stand out from the headlines. The spilled glass illustrates the fragmented nature of these inputs and the unique, colorful narratives we create. What a beautiful mess.
I Think About You
Colliding with inspiration takes up significant space in our daily lives. Our focus on a person, project or idea moves through phases of hot passion and chilling indifference, transforming every single day. Within each such cycle, we get to observe our worth and our vanity, creating endless new shades of understanding.
Here the background squares could be viewed as calendar days -- the agreed-upon structure of time that keeps ticking in a predictable manner. The melting pops speak to our emotional blending with our "lover".
As someone who spent a number of years in marketing, I truly appreciate the zest of attention-grabbing headlines. It’s highly recommended to include numbers (like in “10 top secrets”) and words that convey urgency of action and ease of use.
Yet, when seeing 100s of expertly-written headlines in my own inbox, I occasionally feel my heart bleed. This piece encourages me to stay balanced: to continue being a life-long student, but also listen to what I know in my heart to be true and right for me.
