Sometimes it’s good to remind ourselves that how we see our world as individuals is not the same as how others around us see that same world. I was reminded of this last night when I told my husband that I needed my glasses just to get from the bathroom to the bedroom at night. He laughed and laughed at the notion of me walking into walls, and I realized that he really couldn’t know how I see the world.
So I had this crazy notion of experimenting with doing art – painting – without the aid of contact lenses or glasses. Obviously it would be very abstract. In the meantime, until I work up the nerve to put a brush to canvas, the photo above is the best Photoshop simulation of my vision I could manage of my view of some items on the conference room table. I challenge you to try to put yourself behind someone else’s eyes today, you might be surprised at what you see.
What you might see.
