This weeks Art Assignment was a Physcological landscape. The idea was to make a ground on a piece of paper and populate it with objects that had human characteristics.
This particular piece is meant to depict the way perspective shapes our desire to love and be loved. Before this assignment I imagined love to be a desire to care about someone, to simply like someone enough. Post project, my understanding has completly changed. There is something so significant about seeing the same detail as the person next to you. Something extraordinary about seeing the abstract piece and seeing the same painting. I think that in similar perspective we as humans feel less alone. It gives us an identity. Perhaps that is what love is meant to be: seeing the dots and connecting them together, putting things together in a perspective that is shared, but infinitely unique.
