What I’m working on now – puzzling out how to convey warm::silence…
I’ve been working on how to communicate the idea of warm::silence in a four-part fold out series.
For warm I’ve decided to go with greens and browns because I wanted something that was verdant and lush and something that has a visceral association or memory of warm for me. I’ve also tried greys/greens which seem to work as well (think rocks/moss).
The silence has caused me great consternation. I’ve decided to not go with the idea of -silence as the absence of sound- but instead I’ve been working on -silence as internal stillness.
I’ve also thought about exploring the idea of silence as terror – the scream that has no sound – which is a recurring anxiety dream for me – I try to scream but I can’t make a sound… which loops back to the idea of silence as mental stillness which I can get when you I do a modified meditation so hum or I count my breaths.
Either way – this idea is still in progress.
I’m not sure the mouths work (in other iterations I use houses) but they were certainly fun to make.
