It was a long time ago I wrote about my thinking-out-of-the-box exercise. It is not because I have stopped doing them. It is simply because I have not had a great deal of time. And of course that all of them are not that good.
These pictures I found interesting.
It is the same bridge, but gave me completely different associations.
This could be a symbol for inclusion, understanding of different needs, and an open mind. The bridge connects equally minded but still let others pass without problems.
This is then a symbol of the opposite. This bridge holds together, without letting anybody fall outside the pattern. It limits and exclude. Our little space is perfect. The rest of the World is not interesting.
For me this gives associations to a hectic, technological society. Everybody is too busy to mind much at all. It is dusty and grey.
This on the other hand is peaceful. It is not a perfect world, but there is tranquility in this image.
If I would like to find something negative instead I could say that the concrete and industry challenge the sun.
I come to think of a teacher I had at university. He was interested in art, but he was supposed to teach us in a technological subject. If we found the subject boring someone always trigged him to talk about art. That we – technological students as we were – found that more interesting is surprising, but it was.
One time we discussed a piece of modern art consisting of a tub filled with water with two basket balls floating around.
