GESTALT mon amour : the visual world is so complex that the mind has developed strategies for coping with the confusion. The mind tries to find the simplest solution to a problem. One of the ways it does this is to form groups of items that have certain characteristics in common. Most of what gestalt studies is concerned with how these groups are formed and what effect they have on perception. The most fascinating principle to me is CLOSURE : starting from the idea that a complex object is really a group of simple items that the mind puts together as a single entity, giving a few essential elements the mind supplies the missing pieces in a composition.
Another piece for Flooded, something about this project is helping me defining a style, I really like mixing texture, colors and organic shapes in a stable composition. I've always loved all kind of watery/sea related creature and as I'm almost going crazy in the attempt to set up a lovely nest for my incredibly fluffy family while actually creating a micro universe mini-me shaped, I developed a certain passion for visual complexity, universal theory and whatever winks at cosmic creation and connection between micro and macro. Well it's beginning to show
