The View, Horizontally

Posted on Updated on

A Visible Horizon                   Ever since I was a young boy, I was intrigued by the idea of perception.  If something is there, but you do not see it or experience it, is it there. Obviously in your occurring world it is not.  How much of the world and of life itself simply does not exist for us, because we do not perceive it? Following my typology of circles, I continued to study the idea of things which are within our view yet we are not aware of their existence. Something that fulfils that description, is the horizon. The horizon is always there, even when we do not see it. And horizontal lines are an integral part of life, even if we are not conscious of them. Inspired by the typology work of Steve Tyler, I created a 9×9 grid to present a typology exploring the view we see horizontally. Four rows were left blank to create a typology of horizontal lines. Then I took the idea even further and created an imaginary horizontal line through each row of pictures. To the sweet sound of Caribbean Soca music, enjoy the View, HorizontallyThe View, Horizontally
