Visually Prepared

We experience so much in the world through our eyes. Our connection to imagery sets the stage for what we create in our own surroundings. “What we see, we become.” Hence, it may be the reason why Pinterest has taken off in its visual clipboard format. But let’s jump to the real subject at hand.

Are you visually prepared? Do you keep an illustrated journal of images; an invaluable collection of what truly draws you into a space? What do you envision in your own spaces? The tricky part of becoming visually prepared is embracing the art form of your images and then implementing a piece, a part or a whole vision into your surroundings.

Dan Rice described it best. “There are three forms of visual art: Painting is art to look at, sculpture is art you can walk around, and architecture is art you can walk through.” That’s the Thursday Brain Twizzler to think about today!
