This David Hockney artwork has hung over my desk for five years now. Pearblossom Hwy uses collaged photos in a modern cubist technique to express the wandering eye of the passenger on a long road trip. Unlike the driver, the passenger is not bound to watch the road. Bored, distracted, they can stare into the horizon or hone intently on some roadside detail. If ever an image captured a restless, curious mind this is it!
I am always inspired by the movement of this piece and the way it captures a multifarious perspective. That's why I've chosen Pearblossom Highway as the focus for my first foray into interactive media via thinglink.
At my workshops and speaking gigs this year students and audience members have asked me to send out regular posts with hints and exercises in Adventurous Thinking and the Five Ways. Problem is, I couldn't work out how to convert that circular Five Ways perspective into a 2D blog format. Until thinglink.
The hearts represent exercises, great articles and a bit of surprise and delight. There's tons of room for improvement and I would really like my own icons, but I think I've discovered how a multifarious perspective can be express regularly on a screen. What do you think?
