It’s so tempting to follow someone’s process aiming for their success. Every one has their own path, their own skills, their unique view of the world. Instead of going for sharper, supersaturated and brighter, I went the other way with this photo. A simpler view of the world.
Create something simple today.
While coding my final project for Creative Coding class, I reflected on how easy it is with the internets and all the social media to copy someone else; trying for their success. But it seems that with unique skills and points of view, we have our own ideas to add to the universe. Unique ideas, wholly our own, a glimpse at an adjacent possible that no one else notices. How important is that? Hugely. For this piece of art, I took an amazing sunrise. It didn’t need any more saturation or boosting of color. It was as vibrant as it could be. And then I went simpler with it by using the low-poly generator that I built to bust it up into its tiny areas of color. And it’s spectacular still.
