A friend in the Making Learning Connected MOOC did an interesting art/media activity … her daughter had given her a nifty birthday card of a woman in a dress, but the dress was cut-out, allowing you to see the world through the folds of the dress. You hold up the card, and while the frame is the same — the woman, smiling — the layer beneath the flowing skirt is whatever you hold the card up against.
I saw that and thought: how simple and how amazingly cool, and then decided, I need to give that a try. So I did.
I made a drawing of a computer, and cut out the screen, and then decided to make a commentary on seeing the world beyond the screen. It’s a reminder of the beauty of the world all around us (ironic, I know, in that I am sharing the idea on your screen). This is a collage of some of the images that I ended up taking.
Give it a try. See what happens. The results are pretty interesting, I think.
Peace (in the view),
