life & image
It wasn’t really all that clear in the jungles and forests, nor in the dim alleys of the ancient cities. Eyes are always moving. Life is motion. It blurs. So we love the safer vistas of the savanna grasslands because we might be able to spot the lion in time. Distance, clarity and focus reassure us.
In our waking life we have since changed matters with lighting, eyeglasses, hi-rez imagery and signage.
Still-photography actually stopped the flux of life and gave us a crisp new image of reality, sharper than flemish oils, but so unlike actual living.
In our dreams we navigate an even thicker soup of divergent images, some too sharp, but many so very soft and even harder to resolve. Yet this is where the dynamics of our life are played out every night and every day. The unconscious.
