A Wider Perspective07-15-2010
I can’t remember who sent me this link, but I suspect it was my friend Suki, who often stumbles across fascinating things to celebrate in life.
Anyway, I LOVE this collection of photographs by Andy Freeberg called Guardians of Russian Art Museums. It delights me that Freeberg took a wider perspective on defining what art at the museum was to him. Looking at this collection reminds me that often it is possible to expand our vision so that we are seeing more than we initially thought was there for us.
What if we could use this technique if we were feeling angry or disgruntled with someone we love? Is there a way to step back from the situation and widen the field of vision/experience to include some larger context?
What if we could do this with our lives, in general? Look from a different angle? Can you picture yourself looking at yourself? What do you see?
