“Scribbles"

The fact that we live at the bottom of a deep gravity well, on the surface of a gas covered planet going around a nuclear fireball 90 million miles away and think this to be normal is obviously some indication of how skewed our perspective tends to be. -Douglas Adams

The whole world may just be a big bunch of scribbles, our lives and the events inside them only clever interpretations based on our perspective. Even if someone were to explain to you the many intricacies and nuances inherent in the term “perspective”, that itself would be from their perspective. Perhaps you’ve your own opinion of the matter. It should come as no enormous shock then that people have their very own versions of events (sometimes held onto rather tightly). This is likely why eyewitness testimony in court cases is often seen as unreliable, why we seek the approval of others for things we like, even sometimes why we fight wars. Scribbles is a visual ode to the succulent randomness the world lends out to us and why our perspective and interpretations decide whether we see masterpieces worthy of thorough examination…or just a bunch of scribbles.

ABOUT

What causes us to see a million tiny masterpieces in a splotchy, unintelligible doodle? When we look close enough and for a long enough amount of time we might see a world of swirling genius on a page filled with scribbles. Is it the brain projecting something onto nothing? Or is something else at work? Could it be the burning bulbs of ideas too good to write slowly or a picture too urgent to take your time with? Scribble explores the little universes tumbling about in the oceans of ink and pencil and paint. (read more >>>)
